comment Whats the contact area for elastic contact between a cylinder and a plane surface?
That's what I was thinking as well; I didn't know if there is an actual formula for it. Thank you

Thanks for the help. I did not mean to be rude before. Just getting stressed about starting a project last minute. Thanks again!

comment Confused about unit of kilowatt hours
I am not getting anywhere on here. I am trying to make a parallel between my homework problems so that I can do the rest of the project. All of my homework problems just say "A ___ kW fuel cell ....". If I could determine how much power my fuel cell provides then I could do the rest of the homework but this is not helping me

If I need to supply 25 kW-hr per day then I am just going to simplify it and design a 1 kW fuel cell

comment Confused about unit of kilowatt hours
Thank you. Since the course I am taking deals with fuel cells and their use and not on electronics then I was told to just simplify the problem which is why I don't include other factors. I was just reading something and it said "A 3 kW fuel cell ... ". So I guess that means it supplies 72 kW-hr of energy. So if I am supplying 24 kW-hr, I was wondering if I could just call it a 1 kW fuel cell

Thanks anyway, I will try to deal with this in another way to find a solution

comment Confused about unit of kilowatt hours
I guess i understand what you're saying, I am just having a hard time trying to apply it to the design of a fuel cell. I am trying to size a fuel cell so that it can run consistently for a day, essentially proving 24 kW-hr so I thought i could just design a 1 kW fuel cell and provide it with enough fuel and air so that it could run for 24 hours

So is my above solution correct? If the average consumtion of a house per day is 24 kW-hr then should my fuel cell be designed as a 1 kW fuel cell or a 24 kW fuel cell?

My question was not aiming towards information about a generator. It was more towards a better understanding of a kilowatt hour.

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?
