Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to calculate the surface cooling rate from the sides of a round tin can using Rayleigh, Prandtl and Grashof numbers but I'm getting a ridiculously high result, and I'm hoping someone could run through my numbers to tell me where I'm going wrong.

Posting my question is going to take a bit of time, so could you let me know if you're willing to tackle this one.

Thanks

Roger
