Answer: (d).4.094 seconds
An egg with mean diameter of 4 cm and initially at 25 degree Celsius is placed in an open boiling water container for 4 minutes and found to be boiled at a particular level. For how long should a similar egg boil at the same level, when refrigerator temperature is 5 degree Celsius? Use lumped parameter theory and assume following properties of egg

k = 12 W/m K

h = 125 W/m² K

c = 2 k J/kg K

p = 1250 kg/m³
Answer: (c).271.49 seconds

The temperature of body is measured to be 25 degree Celsius, when found and heat transfer coefficient is estimated to be 8 W/m² K. Modeling the body as a 30 cm diameter, 1.7 cm long cylinder. Estimate the time of death of person.
Answer: (d).10.55 seconds
The following data pertains to the junction of a thermocouple wire used to measure the temperature of the gas stream.

Density = 8500 kg/m³, specific heat = 325 J/kg K, thermal conductivity = 40 W/m K and the heat transfer coefficient between the junction and gas = 215 W/m² K.

If thermocouple junction can be approximated as 1 mm diameter sphere, determine how long it will take for the thermocouple to read 99% of the initial temperature difference.
Answer: (a).9.86 seconds
A thermocouple junction in the form of 4 mm radius sphere is to be used to measure the temperature of a gas stream. The junction is initially at 35 degree Celsius and is placed in a gas stream which is at 300 degree Celsius. The thermocouple is removed from the hot gas stream after 10 seconds and kept in still air at 25 degree Celsius with convective coefficient 10 W/m² K. Find out the time constant of the thermocouple. Assume the thermos-physical properties as given below:

h = 37.5 W/m² K

p = 7500 kg/m³

c = 400 J/kg K
Answer: (b).106.67 seconds
