Select one:

a. 50 cm2

b. 150 cm2

c. 15 cm2

d. 105 cm2

9)

In a heating system, cold outdoor air at 10 °C flowing at a rate of 6 kg/min is mixed adiabatically with heated air at 70 °C flowing at a rate of 3 kg/min. The exit temperature of the mixture is:

Select one:

a. 40 °C

b. 55 °C

c. 45 °C

d. 85 °C

e. 30 °C

10)

Air is to be heated steadily by an 8 kW electric resistance heater as it flows through an insulated duct. If the air enters at 50°C at a rate of 2 kg/s, the exit temperature of air is:

Select one:

a. 55.4 °C

b. 50.0 °C

c. 58.0 °C

d. 46.0 °C

e. 54.0 °C

1) As the mixing is adiabatic,

heat in = heat out

Assuming Cp of water to be constant = 4.187 kJ/kg-K

Let the base temperature be 0 C

1------> 20 C stream of water

2 ---> 80 C stream of water

3 -----> T3 C stream of water (outlet)

By mass balance,

m3 = m1 + m2

.: m3 = 20 + 40 = 60 kg/min

m1Cp(T1-0) + m2Cp(T2-0) = m3Cp(T3-0)

.: m1(T1-0) + m2(T2-0) = m3(T3-0)

.: 20*(20-0) + 40*(80-0) = 60*(T3 - 0)

On solving, we get

T3 = 60 C

b) State 1:

From superheated steam table, at 0.8 MPa and 500 C,

specific enthalpy H1 = 3481.17 kJ/kg

Throttling is an isenthalpic process.

State 2 : P = 0.6 MPa

H2 = H1 ................(since isenthalpic)

From saturated steam table at P = 0.6 MPa,

specific enthalpy of satuarted vapor Hv = 2756.14 kJ/kg

As H2 > Hv , steam is superheated at the exit condition.

Now, look for H = 3481.17 kJ/kg and P = 0.6 MPa in the superheated steam table.

We get, T = 500 C
