Consider a vertical parallel-plate channel of width with walls at different temperatures and , . Two cases are studied: (1) pure free convection (i.e., the channel is closed at both ends and there is no net flow); and (2) mixed free and forced convection (a pressure gradient is present). The velocity (solution of the momentum equation) is given by
