1 Thermodynamics Efficiencies A boiler consumes 400 therms of natural gas per hour (1 therm of natural gas = 100,000 btu lower heating value). This boiler generates 33,000 pounds per hour of steam. The make-up water to the boiler is liquid water at 100 psia and 190 deg F. The steam leaves as superheated vapor, 100 psia and 400 deg F.

4 Thermodynamics Efficiencies An air conditioner provides cooling for a three bedroom house with an area of 1500 sq. ft. This requires 3 tons of cooling. A ton of cooling is equivalent to 12,000 btu/h heat extraction. This air conditioner consumes electricity at the rate of 2.7kW when providing this cooling. What is the COP for this unit?
