Question: two streams of water are mixed in a steadystate process...

Question details

Two streams of water are mixed in a steady-state process: one stream of 15 kg/s at 95°C and a second stream of undetermined flow at 25°C. It is desired to produce a product stream at a temperature of 75 °C. The mixing vessel is not well-insulated and heat is lost at a rate of 1.0 kW Do not assume that the heat capacity value is constant. a. What is the flowrate of the 25°C stream and the 75°C stream? b. If the mixing vessel was perfectly insulated, what would be the temperature of the product stream if the flows are the same as in part (a)? Ignore any mixing effects. Repeat parts (a) and (b) for another liquid of your own choosing. Specify the liquid and the source for your heat capacity values. c.
