Baffles increases velocity by reducing pressure there by due to increased turbulence heat transfer coefficient increases.

As the induce turbulence so it will increase heat transfer coefficient.

The flow pass by the heat transfer coefficient.

Yes, cause of baffles Turbuly creat so increases h.t.c.
