## Surface temperature of solid cylinder immersed in fluid Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
surface_temperature = Fluid temperature+((Internal heat generation*Cylinder Radius)/(2*Convection heat transfer coefficient))
Tw = T∞+((qG*R)/(2*h))
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Fluid temperature - Fluid temperature is the temperature of the fluid surrounding the object. (Measured in Kelvin)
Internal heat generation - Internal heat generation is defined as the conversion of electrical, chemical, or nuclear energy into heat (or thermal) energy which leads to a rise in temperature throughout the medium. (Measured in Watt Per Cubic Metre)
Convection heat transfer coefficient - Convection heat transfer coefficient is the rate of heat transfer between a solid surface and a fluid per unit surface area per unit kellvin. (Measured in Watt per Meter² per K)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Fluid temperature: 350 Kelvin --> 350 Kelvin No Conversion Required
Internal heat generation: 100 Watt Per Cubic Metre --> 100 Watt Per Cubic Metre No Conversion Required
