04
the specific humidity, relative humidity, vapor density, dew point
temperature, and enthalpy using refrigeration and air
conditioning tables.

(c) An auditorium is to be air conditioned for a seating capacity of
07
2000 persons for the following outdoor and indoor comfort
conditions.
Outdoor temperature 34?C, 70% RH Indoor temperature
26 ?C DBT, 50% RH, Sensible heat load=480000 K J/ hr Latent
hear load =160000 KJ/ hr. The rise in temperature of the air inside
the auditorium is limited to 7 ?C. About 70% of the room air
going to the exhaust is recirculated and mixed with 30% fresh
air. The fan is located before all the cooling and heating
equipment's and mixed air is passed through the fan. The motor
capacity is connected to the fan is 50 K W, assume 80% off the
motor efficiency is given to the air passing through the fan. The
required air conditioning is achieved first by cooling and
dehumidification and then heating the air .The dew point
temperature of cooling and humidifier coil is 12?C. Determine
the following
I) Quantity of air supplied to outdoor conditions in m3/hr per
person.
II) The capacity of the refrigeration system TOR.
III)Capacity of heating coil in K W.
IV)The bypass factor of the cooling coil.

Q.2 (a) Discuss the advantages of dense air refrigeration system over and
03
open air refrigeration system

(b) A rectangular duct of 50 cm X 40 cm size carries 75 m3/min of
04

diameter of the circular duct if
1) the quantity of air carried in both the cases is same
2) the velocity of air in both the cases is same
Assume f= 0.01 for sheet metal, calculate the pressure loss per
100 m length of the duct.
