7-21 Water flows over a large plate. The rate of heat transfer per unit width of the plate is to be
determined.
Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The critical Reynolds number is Recr = 5105.

7-31 A circuit board is cooled by air. The surface temperatures of the electronic components at
the leading edge and the end of the board are to be determined.
Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The critical Reynolds number is Recr = 5105.
3 Radiation effects are negligible. 4 Any heat transfer from the back surface of the board is
disregarded. 5 Air is an ideal gas with constant properties.
