Problem 148P

A 2-kW baseboard electric resistance heater in a vacant room is turned on and kept on for 15 min. The mass of the air in the room is 75 kg, and the room is tightly sealed so that no air can leak in or out. The temperature rise of air at the end of 15 min is

(a) 8.5°C

(b) 12.4°C

(c) 24.0°C

(d) 33.4°C

(e) 54.8°C

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step by step solution Step 1 of 1The solution is obtained from the energy balance : ......equation(1) =power of electric resistance heater,given =mass of air in the room,given is the specific heat of airSubstituting these values in equation(1),So the raise in temperature is

Step 2 of 1
