I can't seem to model this properly. This isn't an assignment, I'm just curious how this will go, lol.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I have this tank with an incoming feed stream with temperature Ti, and an output stream T. It has a jacket where q would be modified depending on the desired output stream T.

So I assembled this:

ρ*cp*vdT/dt = q + m*cp*(T-Ti)

I can't seem to assemble the differential equation required for q.

Thanks!
