To increase the heat transfer from a wood burning stove fins are going to be attached to the metal chimney pipe. The fins will be 3 cm wide at the base and have a thickness of approximately 2mm. The surface temperature of the pipe is 500°C, and the surrounding air temperature is assumed to be a constant 25°C. Select a suitable material for the fins and also justify an appropriate length. The material and length should be based an attempted to maximize heat transfer and minimize cost. Assume a reasonable value for the convection heat transfer coefficient.
