The problem is that of predicting the transient cooling of a convectively cooled object, such as we showed in Fig. 9. With reference to Fig. 10, we apply our now-familiar First law statement, eqn. 19) d [ρcV (T − Tref )] dt where A and V are the surface area and volume of the body, T is the temperature of the body, T = T (t), and Tref is the arbitrary temperature at which U is defined equal to zero. 20) 5 Is it clear why (T −Tref ) has been changed to (T −T∞ ) under the derivative? Remember that the derivative of a constant (like Tref or T∞ ) is zero.

12 Thermocouple response to a hot gas flow. Objects that are cooler than the fire, the toaster, or the sun emit much less energy because the energy emission varies as the fourth power of absolute temperature. Very often, the emission of energy, or radiant heat transfer, from cooler bodies can be neglected in comparison with convection and conduction. But heat transfer processes that occur at high temperature, or with conduction or convection suppressed by evacuated insulations, usually involve a significant fraction of radiation.
