## Main Question or Discussion Point

Is there a mathematical relation for the temperature change when a fluid flows through a pipe from one end to another?

I am not aware of any equation in thermodynamics for this, but I would guess the following parameters are important :

1. cross-sectional diameter of pipe

2. viscosity

3. volumetric flow rate

4. specific heat of the fluid

5. length of pipe.
