heating water

I have built some shelves with a drip system being installed. My problem is figuring out how many heaters would I have to use. Is there a formula to calc. the heat loss to surface area. There has to be some way to do this.

What are the dimensions? If you post a picture of the drip system I can help, I just need to know what sort of system it is

I came across this thread recently. The replies by gasman, jerv and nisse give the equations.
