A cross flow heat
exchanger similar to the one shown in Figure 5.31 is being used to recover heat
from a flow of hot air that enters the heat exchanger at 200°F with a mass flow
rate of 14,400 lbm/h. Cool water, flowing in the tubes, enters the heat exchanger
at 50°F and leaves at 80°F while flowing at 12,000 lbm/h. Determine the

a. Heat transfer rate
recovered from the hot air flow (Btu/h)

b. The exit temperature of
the air (°F)

c. UA product for this
heat exchanger (Btu/h-°F)Consider a situation where the mass flow rates of the
air and water are the same, and the entering air

air and water are the same, and the entering air temperature is the same.
However, the entering water temperature is now 60°F rather than 50°F. Based on
your previous analysis, estimate the
