i need to calculate heat load(Q) of a shell and tube heat exchanger.In this heat exchanger problem gives the following datas(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

tube side(water)

Avg flow rate=115 m3/hr@3.5 kg/cm2,density=990 kg/m3,Δt=5 c,cp=4186 j/kg c

shell side(hot fluid)

Avg flow rate=120 m3/hr@4.5 kg/cm2,density=1100 kg/m3,Δt=15 c,cp=3767 j/kg c

when i use eqn Q=mCpΔt i couldn't get both shell side and tube side heat transport equal.

can any one help to solve this..??

thanks
