Chapter 10 Boiling and Condensation10-47E Saturated steam at a saturation temperature of Tsat= 95°F condenses on the outer surfaces of horizontal pipes which are maintained at 85°F by circulating cooling water. The rate of heat transfer to the cooling water and the rate of condensation per unit length of a single horizontal pipe are to be determined.Assumptions1Steady operating conditions exist.2The pipe is isothermal. 3 There is no interference between the pipes (no drip of the condensate from one tube to another). PropertiesThe properties of water at the saturation temperature of 95°F are hfg= 1040 Btu/lbm and ρv= 0.0025 lbm/ft3.
