Heat Exchanger Design
I have 1,935,420 lbs/hr of process fluid entering all liquid at 168F. 38,000 lbs/hr boils, and the mixture exits at 190F. Total duty is 45,500,000 BTU/hr. Is there a way to calculate the liquid specific heat and the vapor specific heat with this information?

Re: Heat Exchanger Design
Sorry, no. You need more temperature measurements becuase there is no set ratio of specific heats.
