Water flow to adiabatically cool air stream?
An inlet flow of air at 145 deg F and a dew point of 100 deg F is flowing at a rate of 450 lb dry air/hr . Determine the flow of water (lb/hr) added if the stream was to be adiabatically cooled to 130 deg F.

1.7 lb/hour of water must be added.
The total air flow = 109 acfm
The initial Wet Bulb Temp = 100.0 Deg F
The final Wet Bulb Temp = 102.57 Deg F
Initial & Final #/hr of dry air plus associated moisture = 470.5 lb
Initial #/hr of associated moisture = 20.2 #/hr
Final #/hr of associated moisture = 21.9 #/hr
