Problem 4.17

As shown in Fig. P4.17, air with a volumetric flow rate of 15,000 ft3 /min enters an air-handling unit at 358F, 1 atm. The air-handling unit delivers air at 808F, 1 atm to a duct system with three branches consisting of two 26-in.-diameter ducts and one 50-in. duct. The velocity in each 26-in. duct is 10 ft/s. Assuming ideal gas behavior for the air, determine at steady state (a) the mass flow rate of air entering the air-handling unit, in lb/s. (b) the volumetric flow rate in each 26-in. duct, in ft3 /min. (c) the velocity in the 50-in. duct, in ft/s.
