A jet condenser is designed to handle 12000 kg of dry and saturated steam per hour. The steam enters the condenser at 38°C (dry and saturated), and the condensate leaves the condenser at 32°C. If the inlet temperature of cooling water is 10°C, 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
