I want to find the heat lost from a tank of hot water.


tank radius 0.65 m
Tank height 1.7 m
Temperature of water in tank 80 degrees celcius
air temp around tank 36 degrees celcius
This is in a very large room.

this tank is made from 304 stainless steel.
It has an entry and an exit.
All fittings are stainless.

What is the heat lost from this tank.

many thanks
