A large truck is to transport 30,000 Kg of orange pre-cooled to 4oC under average temperature of 27oC. The structure of the walls of the truck is such that the rate of heat transportation is UA=80W per oC temperature difference between the ambient and the oranges. From past experience, ambient air is estimated to enter the cargo space of the truck through the cracks at a rate of 4L/s. Also, the average heat of respiration of the oranges at 4oC is 0.017W/kg for this particular load. Disregarding any condensation and taking the density of air to be 1.15kg/m3, determine the refrigeration load of this truck and the amount of ice needed to meet the entire refrigeration need of the truck for a 15hour trip.
Can you help me on figuring out how to start this question?

Hi, I am sorry to deviate a little from the topic but I need some help. I am a mechanical engineering student in Dubai and I am currently doing a project on RO systems. I have to look into how the feed pressure/operating pressure affects the cost of RO systems and also the operating costs of an RO system. Can anyone help me find some resources? Because I am not finding anything that specifically tells me how the cost is affected by the pressure or the operating cost. Please I would really appreciate if someone could help me. Thank you
