Hi again out there
As far as I could find in my physics book
the heating of a copper wire with known weight
from its diameter and length, a known applied
power and time will be: dT = (P*t)/(m*c) and T1
= T0 + dT
(60min), m=1kg, T0=25 degC and c=387 J/(Kg*K)
dT = 9.3 and T1=34.3 degC.
but what if one has to account for the heat
conductance and heat radiation from the wire
(natural air cooling) - then what will the final
temperature be in degrees Celcius?
