Description

KNOWN: Hand experiencing convection heat transfer with moving air and water.

FIND: Determine which condition feels colder. Contrast these results with a heat loss of 30W/m2 under normal room conditions.

ASSUMPTIONS: 1) Temperature is uniform over the hand's surface

2) Convection coefficient is uniform over the hand

3) Negligible radiation exchange between hand and surroundings in the case of air flow

ANALYSIS: The hand will feel colder for the conditions which results in the larger heat loss. The Heat loss can be determined from Newton's law of cooling.
