A horizontal steam line carries saturated steam at a rate of

6.0E6 lbm/h. The steam line has a diameter of 2.67 ft, a wall thickness of 2

in, and a length of 150 ft. Accounting for the steam pressure drop in the pipe,

steam may be considered saturated at an average pressure of 800 psia. The pipe

is insulated with a thickness of 7 inches. Find the rate of heat loss to the

ambient at 23 C. The emissivity of the insulation is 0.7. Other data include Pambient

= 1 atm, ks = 10 Btu/h·ft·F, ki = 0.7

Btu/h·ft·F. The ambient air is quiescent.
