Variables Used
Stanton Number - The Stanton number is a dimensionless number that measures the ratio of heat transferred into a fluid to the thermal capacity of the fluid.
External Convection Heat Transfer Coefficient - (Measured in Watt per Meter² per K) - External Convection Heat Transfer Coefficient is the proportionality constant between the heat flux and the thermodynamic driving force for the flow of heat in case of convective heat transfer.
Specific Heat Capacity - (Measured in Joule per Kilogram per K) - Specific Heat Capacity is the heat required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of a given substance by a given amount.
Fluid Velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - Fluid velocity is the volume of fluid flowing in the given vessel per unit cross sectional area.
Density - (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³) - The Density of a material shows the denseness of that material in a specific given area. This is taken as mass per unit volume of a given object.
