Hi all...

I have a mass flow rate of 9800Kg/h substance through a heater. If the temperature of the substance is 0deg c and the min tem to be at 15deg c. Specific Heat Capacity: 1040 J/(kg*K)

1. how much heat do i need to apply?

2. How much power do i need to generate that heat?

Anyone?

I don't know if I understand this exrecise correctly(bad linguistic skills) but maybe this can help: $Q=\rho*m(T_1-T_2)$ and $N=\frac{A}{t}$. So, if there's 9800kg of substance flowing through in 1h, you need $Q=\rho*9800(15-0) J$ of energy(note the K's and C's, though) and you need $N=\frac{\rho*9800(15-0) }{3600s}W$ of power, which probably is constant.

$\rho$ is the Specific Heat Capacity($1040\frac {J}{kg*K}$ in this case. I'm not sure if this is what you want.

Thanks Garfield...

Now i am going to work it out!! Where is that calculator!!
