# Air-Conditioning

Worked examples
For air at 25oC (Dry bulb) 60% saturated
at 1.01325bar, determine:

## Specific humidity (moisture content),

Specific enthalpy, h, kJ/kgdry air
Dew point temperature oC

## By calculation and check using psychrometric chart

A room is to be air-conditioned to 25oC (dry bulb) 50% saturation. The
outside air is at 35oC (dry bulb) 70% saturation.
75% of the air extracted from the room is recirculated, the remainder being
exhausted. The recirculated air and make up air are mixed and pass
through a cooler with apparatus dew point of 12oC. It is then reheated and
returned to the room at 20oC.
The room has 5 occupants doing light physical work. The gains from
electrical equipment and heat transmission from outside are 1233W.
The heat gain for each occupant is 80W sensible and 140W Latent.
Mark the relevant state points on the psychrometric chart.
Determine:
a) The mass flow rate of air entering the room
b) The rate of heat extraction in the cooler
c) The rate of heat supply in the heater (neglect the fan power
input)
d) The coil bypass factor
