Question

A thin-walled double-pipe, counter-flow heat

exchanger is to be used to cool oil (cp = 0.525 Btu/lbm·°F)

from 300°F to 105°F at a rate of 5 lbm/s by water (cp =

1.0 Btu/lbm·°F) that enters at 70°F at a rate of 3 lbm/s. The

diameter of the tube is 5 in and its length is 200 ft. Determine

the overall heat transfer coefficient of this heat exchanger

using (a) the LMTD method and (b) the «-NTU method.
