A steady laminar boundary layer is formed over a flat plate as shown in the figure. The free stream velocity of the fluid is $U_o$. The velocity profile at the inlet $a-b$ is uniform, while that at a downstream location $c-d$ is given by $u=U_o\left[2\displaystyle{\left(\frac{y}{\delta }\right)-\left(\frac{y}{\delta }\right)^2}\right]$.

The ratio of the mass flow rate, $\dot{m}_{bd}$  leaving through the horizontal section $b-d$ to that entering through the vertical section $a-b$ is ___________

For water at $25^\circ C$, $dp_s/dT_s = 0.189 \: kPa/K$ ($p_s$ is the saturation pressure in $kPa$ and $T_s$ is the saturation temperature in $K$) and the specific volume of dry saturated vapour is $43.38 \: m^3/kg$. Assume that the specific volume ... of vapour. Using the Clausius-Clapeyron equation, an estimate of the enthalpy of evaporation of water at $25^\circ C$ (in $kJ / kg$) is __________

A steel ball of $10\:mm$ diameter at $1000\:K$ is required to be cooled to $350\:K$ by immersing it in a water environment at $300\:K$. The convective heat transfer coefficient is $1000\:W/m^2-K$. Thermal conductivity of steel is $40\:W/m-K$. The time constant for the cooling process $\tau$ is $16\:s$. The time required (in $s$) to reach the final temperature is __________

$1.5$ kg of water is in saturated liquid state at $2$ bar $(vf = 0.001061 \: m^3/kg, uf = 504.0 \: kJ/kg,$ $hf = 505 kJ/kg$). Heat is added in a constant pressure process till the temperature of water reaches $400^ \circ C (v = 1.5493 \: m^3/kg, u = 2967.0 kJ/kg,$ $h = 3277.0 \: kJ/kg)$. The heat added (in $kJ$) in the process is _______
