comment How would I work this continuity problem?
Thanks. It's a cool project, if I did save it for the last two weeks. I still have to design the vapor compression refrigeration cyce. It's for my Energy Systems design course. Yes the pipes will be pretty long but they will be winding under the ice rink. Maybe not 1" but between 1" and 2". Do you think I should keep the fluid velocities in the larger pipe and the smaller pipes the same?

comment How would I work this continuity problem?
I am designing a piping network that goes under an ice rink for a project. So I am not really sure if the fluid velocities should be the same. But I know that the flow rate of each smaller pipe is $\frac{1}{10}$ of the flow rate in the big feed pipe

comment How would I work this continuity problem?
A pump will be controlling the fluid flow so there will be a constant flow rate. I am essentially designing an ice rink cooling system and I am trying to design the piping network that will be under the rink. Will the fluid velocities be the same between the smaller pipe and the bigger feed pipe or would that be a design choice?

I assumed that the pressure of the atmosphere where it exits is 0 gauge pressure. I am not using absolute pressure. And yes I do need the pressure at the beginning of the exhaust system.... that't what I am solving for

comment How would I calculate the convection coefficient in transient convection?
Thank you anyway. I'll try to figure it out myself

I never thought of it that way. Thanks for helping me understand that

comment Transient radiation--heating a slab
So here's my problem now. The problem states that "since the heater surrounds the slab, all the heat that leavces the heater is absorbed by the slab". I originally thought that this meant that $\alpha=1$ but now I'm thinking that this just means that the view factor between the heater and the slab is 1. So can I assume that the object is diffuse-grey and says $\alpha=\epsilon$ even though the problem doesnt state that the object is diffuse-grey

comment Transient radiation--heating a slab
OK I understand now. But what exactly is the $\epsilon_{12}$ term? I've never seen that before

comment Transient radiation--heating a slab
I thought it was only true when the object is diffuse-grey? So would I be able to say that the object is diffuse-grey even though it doesn't state it? *sorry i tried to edit this to make it more understandable
