Chapter 10 Boiling and Condensation10-80 Saturated refrigerant-134a vapor condenses on the outside of a horizontal tube maintained at a specified temperature. The rate of condensation of the refrigerant is to be determined.Assumptions1Steady operating conditions exist.2The tube is isothermal. PropertiesThe properties of refrigerant-134a at the saturation temperature of 35°C are hfg= 168.2×103J/kg and ρv= 43.41 kg/m3.
