- Homework Statement
- 1-A power plant generates 150 MW of electrical power. It uses a supply of 1000 MW from a geothermal source and rejects energy to the atmosphere through a cooling tower.

Determine:

a) The rejected power to the atmosphere in MW

b) How much air should be flowed to the cooling tower (kg/s) if its temperature cannot be increased more than 10C.

- Relevant Equations
- Qin-Qout=W

Q=m*cp*(T2-T1)

I have solved this question and it seemed pretty easy, but I got an extremely large number for the mass flow, I had to post the question here to make sure I did it correctly. Any help will be appreciated.
