Air enters a 30 cm diameter cooling section at 1 atm, 35{eq}^o{/eq}C, and 60 % relative humidity at 120 m/min. The air is cooled by passing it over a cooling coil through which cold water flows. The water experiences a temperature rise of 8{eq}^o{/eq}C. The air leaves the cooling section saturated at 20{eq}^o{/eq}C.

(a) Determine the rate of heat transfer. Round your answer to the nearest tenth. {eq}Q_{out}= \rule{3cm}{0.15mm}kJ/min{/eq}

(b) Determine the mass flow rate of the water. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth {eq}m_{cooling\enspace water} =\rule{3cm}{0.15mm} kg/min{/eq}

(c) Determine the exit velocity of the airstream. Round your answer to the nearest ones place. V{eq}_2 = \rule{3cm}{0.15mm} m/min{/eq}.

Psychrometric Process:

In Psychrometric process we study about the heating and cooling process of air. Sensible cooling, sensible heating, humidification and dehumidification are the different process in Psychrometric.
