```12-17
12-46 Water flows over a large plate. The rate of heat transfer per unit width of the plate is to be
determined.
Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The critical Reynolds number is Recr = 5u105. 3
Properties The properties of water at the film temperature of (Ts + Tf)/2 = (10+43.3)/2 = 27qC are (Table
