Chapter 10 Boiling and Condensation10-50 Saturated steam at a saturation temperature of Tsat= 55°C condenses on the outer surface of a horizontal tube which is maintained at 45°C. The required tube length to condense steam at a rate of 10 kg/h is to be determined. Assumptions1Steady operating conditions exist.2The tube is isothermal. PropertiesThe properties of water at the saturation temperature of 55°C are hfg= 2371×103J/kg and ρv= 0.1045 kg/m3.
