We will calculate the efficiency at P r of 3.5 and at 4 and then interpolate to obtain the efficiency at 3.64. At P r = 3.5, η = 0.6475 At P r = 4, η = 0.7456 Then interpolating, we find at P r = 3.64, η = 0.675 Then kW 4124 675 . 2784 W actual = = & The actual exit temperature is calculated from the first law or K 448.6 70 2 ) (23)(1.004 4124 T c m W T in P out = + = + = & &...
