Unformatted text preview: Assumptions All the moisture from the chickens is condensed by the airconditioning system. Properties The latent heat of vaporization of water is given to be 2430 kJ/kg. The average metabolic rate of chicken during normal activity is 10.2 W (3.78 W sensible and 6.42 W latent). Analysis The total rate of heat generation of the chickens in the breeding room is W 1020 = chickens) (100 W/chicken) 2 . 10 ( chickens) of (No. total gen, total gen, = = q Q & & 100 Chickens 10.2 W The latent heat generated by the chicken and the rate of moisture production are kW 0.642 = W 642 = chickens) )(100 W/chicken 42 . 6 ( chickens) of (No. latent gen, latent gen, = = q Q & & g/s 0.264 kg/s 000264 . kJ/kg 2430 kJ/s 642 . fg latent gen, moisture = = = = h Q m & & 1263...
