Preface

This manual is prepared as an aide to the instructors in correcting homework assignments,


but it can also be used as a source of additional example problems for use in the classroom.
With this in mind, all solutions are prepared in full detail in a systematic manner, using a
word processor with an equation editor. The solutions are structured into the following
sections to make it easy to locate information and to follow the solution procedure, as
appropriate:

Solution - The problem is posed, and the quantities to be found are stated.
Assumptions - The significant assumptions in solving the problem are stated.
Properties - The material properties needed to solve the problem are listed.
Analysis - The problem is solved in a systematic manner, showing all steps.
Discussion - Comments are made on the results, as appropriate.

A sketch is included with most solutions to help the students visualize the physical problem,
and also to enable the instructor to glance through several types of problems quickly, and to
make selections easily.
Problems designated with the CD icon in the text are also solved with
the EES software, and electronic solutions complete with parametric studies
are available on the CD that accompanies the text. Comprehensive problems designated with
the computer-EES icon [pick one of the four given] are solved using the EES software, and
their solutions are placed at the Instructor Manual section of the Online Learning Center
(OLC) at www.mhhe.com/cengel. Access to solutions is limited to instructors only who
adopted the text, and instructors may obtain their passwords for the OLC by contacting their
McGraw-Hill Sales Representative at http://www.mhhe.com/catalogs/rep/.
Every effort is made to produce an error-free Solutions Manual. However, in a text
of this magnitude, it is inevitable to have some, and we will appreciate hearing about them.
We hope the text and this Manual serve their purpose in aiding with the instruction of Heat
Transfer, and making the Heat Transfer experience of both the instructors and students a
pleasant and fruitful one.
We acknowledge, with appreciation, the contributions of numerous users of the first
edition of the book who took the time to report the errors that they discovered. All of their
suggestions have been incorporated. Special thanks are due to Dr. Mehmet Kanoglu who
checked the accuracy of most solutions in this Manual.
