Liquid water at 1008F and a volumetric flow rate of 200 gal/min enters a cooling tower operating at steady state. Atmospheric air enters at 1 atm with a dry-bulb temperature of 808F and a wet-bulb temperature of 608F. Moist air exits the cooling tower at 908F and 90% relative humidity. Makeup water is provided at 808F. Plot the mass flow rates of the dry air and makeup water, each in lb/min, versus return water temperature ranging from 80 to 1008F. Ignore kinetic and potential energy effects.
