Calculating sensible heat, latent heat, and heat of vaporization of water

A 1000 m3/min air flow at 170 degrees F and containing 60% relative humidity needs to be cooled to 48 degrees F to promote condensation of the water vapor in the air.

How would you calculate the sensible heat, the latent heat, and determine the latent heat of vaporization of the water vapor in this air stream as the air is cooled from 170 F to 48 F??

Solution Summary

This solution explains how to calculate sensible heat, latent heat and determine the latent heat.
