MASS TRANSFER - EXAMPLE 4.1 : A concentric, counter-current heat exchanger is used to cool lubricating oil. Water is used as the coolant. The mass flow rate of oil into the heat exchanger is 0.1 kg / s = FO. For oil, the inlet temperature TIO = 100 degree Celsius and the outlet temperature TOO = 55 degree Celsius. For water, the inlet temperature TIW = 35 degree Celsius and the outlet temperature TOW = 42 degree Celsius. What is the mass flow rate of water in kg / s, FW needed to maintain these operating conditions? Constant for heat capacity of oil is CO = 2131 J /(kg K) and for water is CW = 4178 J /(kg K). Use the equation (FO)(CO)(TIO ?TOO) = (FW)(CW)(TOW ?TIW).

MASS TRANSFER - ANSWER 4.1 : Rearranging the given equation, then FW = (FO)(CO)(TIO – TOO) / [ (CW)(TOW – TIW) ] = (0.1)(2131)(100 – 55) / [ (4178) (42 – 35) ] = 0.327891 kg / s.

CHEMICAL FLUID MECHANIC - EXAMPLE 3.3 : The drag coefficient Cd = 0.05 and lift coefficient Cl = 0.4 for a levelled flow aircraft are measured. The velocity of the aircraft is v = 150 ft / s with its weight W = 2677.5 pound-force. (a) Find the value of the lift of the aircraft, L, when it is also its weight. (b) The drag of the aircraft, D = Cd M, L = Cl M. Find the value of D. (c) The power required is P = Dv. If 1 pound-force x (ft / s) = 1.356 W, find the value of P in the unit of Watt or W.

ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL ENGINEERING - EXAMPLE 34.19 : In the purchase of a unit of engineering office, a loan has been made to a bank with the following details : Term N = 30 years; interest rate R = 8.07 % / year; security : primary residence; present value pv = \$450000; salary = \$75000 / year or \$56000 / year after tax. (a) Let the discounted present value PV = [ 1 - 1 / (1 + r) ^ n ] / r for arrears, where r = interest rate of discount, n = number of payment, ^ = symbol for power. If the loan repayment was made monthly : (i) calculate the value of r where r = R / k and R is in decimal value; (ii) find the value of n where n = kN; (iii) estimate the value of k where k = number of repayment per year; (iv) calculate the value of PV based on the formula of discounted present value. (b) Calculate the monthly repayment of the loan, MR based on the following formula : pv = PV x MR. (c) Find the percentage of salary remains after paying the loan every month.
