Determine the amount of cooling water required, if the condenser (surface condenser) deals with 15000 kg of steam per hour. The steam is dry and has a latent heat of 2432 kJ per kg. The temperature of condensate is 20°C is less than the steam temperature. Also, the rise is cooling water temperature is 10°C. Take specific heat of water at constant pressure as 4.186 kJ/kg-°C.

A) 154265 kg/hr B) 901476 kg/hr
C) 456279 kg/hr D) 874325 kg/hr
