If I have a fluid, initial temperature and flow rate known (and constant), that is flowing through a heating element (heat given in Watts), what equation do I use to determine how long it takes the fluid to reach a certain temperature? This is a transient problem, for a closed loop system.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
