A coolant fluid at 30°C flows over a heated flat plate maintained at a constant temperature of 100°C. The boundary layer temperature distribution at a given location on the plate may be approximated as T = 30 + 70 exp ( −y ) where y (in m) is the distance normal to the plate and T is in °C. If thermal conductivity of the fluid is 1.0W/mK, the local convective heat transfer coefficient (in W/m2K) at that location will be
