Steam consumption rate

  1. Nov 14, 2009 #1
    I have a question about curry sauce. I've had to calculate heat transfer rate which was 109.6KW to heat the sauce to 98 degrees in 60 mins.... also the sauce is heated by condensing steam at 105 degrees and i worked out that the pressure needed for this is 20.973kpa

    Now i have to work out the rate of steam consumption to deliver the heat transfer from the first part. I'm thinking use Q=ml but how do i do this? Is m the mass of steam?

    Also we are given the mass and density of the sauce... but so far i have not needed the density, could that just be there to trick us or can someone see where i may need it? Thanks
