Variables Used
Average Heat Transfer Coefficient - (Measured in Watt per Meter² per K) - Average Heat Transfer Coefficient is equal to the heat flow (Q) across the heat-transfer surface divided by the average temperature (Δt) and the area of the heat-transfer surface (A).
Prandtl Number at Film Temperature - Prandtl Number at Film Temperature is the ratio of momentum diffusivity to thermal diffusivity at the film temperature.
Reynolds Number for Mixing - Reynolds Number for Mixing is a dimensionless number, which represents the flow around the tips of the rotating impeller and ignores the factors affecting the circulating flow throughout the vessel.
Thermal Conductivity at Film Temperature - (Measured in Watt per Meter per K) - Thermal Conductivity at Film Temperature is the amount of heat flow per unit time through a unit area with a temperature gradient of one degree per unit distance.
Diameter of Horizontal Tube - (Measured in Meter) - Diameter of Horizontal Tube is a straight line passing from side to side through the center of a body or figure, especially a circle or sphere.
