Air at 808F, 1 atm, and 70% relative humidity enters a dehumidifier operating at steady state with a mass flow rate of 1 lb/s. Saturated moist air and condensate exit in separate streams, each at 508F. Neglecting kinetic and potential energy effects, determine (a) the rate of heat transfer from the moist air, in tons. (b) the rate water is condensed, in lb/s. (c) Check your answers using data from the psychrometric chart. (d) Check your answers using Interactive Thermodynamics: IT.
