Direct Heat Transfer Between a Liquid And a Gas

  1. Sep 4, 2014 #1
    Hey guys,

    I was trying to find the answer to this question but could not seem to find anything. I am trying to figure out how to calculate heat transfer rate between a liquid and a gas. Say the the liquid is water in a chamber (with no heat transfer to the walls). The gas is the residual space above the liquid, meaning that the contact surface is the surface of the water. Given the gas and the liquid are at a certain pressure, but the temperature of the gas and the liquid differ. How can I find the heat transfer rate for this problem? Much thanks for help!

    Regards,
    Bob
