A jet condenser is designed to handle 12000 kg of dry and saturated steam per hour. The steam enters the condenser at 38C (dry and saturated), and the condensate leaves the condenser at 32C. If the inlet temperature of cooling water is 10C, find out the mass of cooling water required in kg per hour. Take latent heat of steam as 2300 kJ/kg and specific heat at constant pressure as 4.186 kJ/kg-C.

A) 302973 kg/hr B) 246185 kg/hr
C) 876215 kg/hr D) 741963 kg/hr
