7) Spheres A and B are initially at 800 K, and they are simultaneously quenched in large
constant temperature baths, each having a temperature of 320 K. The following parameters
are associated with each of the spheres and their cooling processes. Sphere A: diameter 300
mm, density 1600 kg/m3, specific heat 400 J/kg*K, thermal conductivity 170 W/m*K,
convection coefficient 5 W/m2*K. Sphere B: diameter 30 mm, density 400 kg/m3, specific
heat 1,600 J/kg*K, thermal conductivity 1.70 W/m*K, convection coefficient 50 W/m2*K.
Calculate the time required for the surface of sphere A reach 415 K.

Problem 7: Correct, Code =4313336481

9.1     A thermopane window consists of two pieces of glass 7 mm thick that enclose an air
        space 7 mm thick. The window separates room air at 20OC from outside ambient air at
         10oC. The convection coefficient associated with the inner (room-side) surface is 10
        W/m2K. Glass: kg = 1.4 W/ mK, air: ka = 0.0245 W/ mK. The window is 0.8 m long
        by 0.5 m wide. Neglect radiation, and assume the air enclosed between the panes to
        be stagnant. Compute and plot the effect of ho on the heat loss for 10  ho  100
        W/m2K. Repeat this calculation for a triple-pane construction in which a third pane
        and a second air space of equivalent thickness are added.
