Abstract : "Values of film thickness in film boiling have been computed for three different sizes of nichrome wires at five different sub-atmospheric pressures. The values of alpha , total heat transmission co-efficient, ac heat transmission co-efficient due to conduction through the vapour film and alpha R, heat transmission co-efficient due to radiation, have been calculated. The values of film thickness were found to decrease with external pressure, but were found to increase slightly with the radius of the wire. alpha & alpha c both increase with rise of pressure but decrease with the radius of the radius of the heated wire. Alpha R shows a minimum value at a pressure of 15 cm. of Hg. in the case of all the wire sizes. The radiation loss alpha R is much smaller than conduction loss alpha. "
