Variables Used
External convection heat transfer coefficient - External convection heat transfer coefficient is the proportionality constant between the heat flux and the thermodynamic driving force for the flow of heat (i.e., the temperature difference, ΔT) in case of convective heat transfer (Measured in Watt per Meter² per K)
Specific Heat Capacity - Specific Heat Capacity is the heat required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of a given substance by a given amount. (Measured in Kilojoule per Kilogram per K)
Fluid Velocity - Fluid velocity is the volume of fluid flowing in the given vessel per unit cross sectional area. (Measured in Meter per Second)
Density - The density of a material shows the denseness of that material in a specific given area. This is taken as mass per unit volume of a given object. (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
