A cylindrical nuclear fuel rod of 1 cm in diameter is encased in a concentric tube of 2 cm in diameter where cooling water flows through the annular region between the fuel rod

A cylindrical nuclear fuel rod of 1 cm in diameter is encased in a concentric tube of 2 cm in diameter, where cooling water flows through the annular region between the fuel rod (k = 30 W/m·K) and the concentric tube. Heat is generated uniformly in the rod at a rate of 50 MW/m3. The convection heat transfer coefficient for the concentric tube surface is 2000 W/m2 ·K. If the surface temperature of the concentric tube is 40°C, determine the average temperature of the cooling water. Can one use the given information to determine the surface temperature of the fuel rod? Explain.
