1-85 A transistor mounted on a circuit board is cooled by air flowing over it. The transistor case temperature is not to exceed 70°C when the air temperature is 55°C. The amount of power this transistor can dissipate safely is to be determined.
Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Heat transfer by radiation is disregarded. 3 The convection heat transfer coefficient is constant and uniform over the surface. 4 Heat transfer from the base of the transistor is negligible.

Then the rate of heat transfer from the power transistor at specified conditions is
Therefore, the amount of power this transistor can dissipate safely is 0.047 W.
1-105 A 1000-W iron is left on the iron board with its base exposed to the air at 20°C. The temperature of the base of the iron is to be determined in steady operation.
Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The thermal properties of the iron base and the convection heat transfer coefficient are constant and uniform. 3 The temperature of the surrounding surfaces is the same as the temperature of the surrounding air.
Properties The emissivity of the base surface is given to be = 0.6.
Analysis At steady conditions, the 1000 W energy supplied to the iron will be dissipated to the surroundings by convection and radiation heat transfer. Therefore,
Solving by trial and error gives
Discussion We note that the iron will dissipate all the energy it receives by convection and radiation when its surface temperature reaches 947 K.
