Question

The minimum fresh air requirement of a residential building is specified to be 0.35 air changes per hour (ASHRAE, Standard 62, 1989). That is, 35 percent of the entire air contained in a residence should be replaced by fresh outdoor air every hour. If the ventilation requirement of a 2.7-m-high, 200-m^{2} residence is to be met entirely by a fan, determine the flow capacity in L/min of the fan that needs to be installed. Also determine the minimum diameter of the duct if the average air velocity is not to exceed 5 m/s.
