1. A heat exchanger is being investigated as a waste heat recovery device. A heat exchanger is common device for using a hot fluid to heat a cold fluid without the fluids mixing.  The following information is known.  The cold fluid stream of liquid A enters at 294.2 K and leaves the device at a temperature of 320.91 K.  Liquid A flows at a rate of 0.006 Kg/s and has a specific heat of 4180 J/(Kg K).  Liquid B enters the device at a temperature of 350.2 K.  Liquid B flows at a rate of 0.005 Kg/s and has a specific heat of 3900 J/(Kg K  The dead state is at 293.2 K and 1 bar.  The device is adiabatic and the pressure losses are neglected in this problem.  Both liquids are incompressible materials.

1. Using the first law determine the exit temperature of Liquid B.
2. Calculate the rate of exergy destroyed in the heat exchanger
3. Calculate the second law efficiency for this device. The exergy product is the exergy increase in liquid A and the exergy input is the exergy change in liquid B.
4. If the exiting liquid B is not used for any useful purpose, calculate the exergy destroyed associated with it.
