Determine the amount of cooling water required, if the condenser (surface condenser) deals with 15000 kg of steam per hour. The steam is dry and has a latent heat of 2432 kJ per kg. The temperature of condensate is 20C is less than the steam temperature. Also, the rise is cooling water temperature is 10C. Take specific heat of water at constant pressure as 4.186 kJ/kg-C.

A) 154265 kg/hr B) 901476 kg/hr
C) 456279 kg/hr D) 874325 kg/hr
