Answer to Question #60560 in Material Science Engineering for kyle
A heat exchanger produces dry steam at 100°C from feed water at 30°C at a rate of 1.5 kgs−1. The heat exchanger receives heat energy at a rate of 600 kW from the fuel used. The specific heat capacity of water is 4187 Jkg−1K−1 and its specific latent heat of vaporisation is 2257 Jkg−1.
i) Determine the heat energy received per kilogram of steam produced.
