Question: steam is to be condensed on the shell side of...

Question details

Steam is to be condensed on the shell side of a heat exchanger at 120°F. Cooling water enters the tubes at 53°F at a rate of104.7 lbm/s and leaves at 77°F. Assuming the heat exchanger to be well-insulated, determine (a) the rate of heat transfer in the heat exchanger Btu/s (Round to the nearest integer) and (b) the rate of exergy destruction in the heat exchanger. Take To -86°F -A destroyed Btu/s (Round to one decimal place)
