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??

Problem:

A 1000 m3/min air stream contains 60% moisture content (humidity) --- the air is at 180 degrees F to start and is to be cooled to 48 degrees F. Assume atmospheric pressure.

How do I calculate the sensible and latent heat to determine the needed cooling.
Also, what would the latent heat of vaporization be for water vapor --- and is determined at 180 degrees or 48 degrees F.

Ultimately I'm trying to determine how much cooling is needed to condense the water vapor and the mass of the water vapor actually condensed?

Solution:

We will work in metrical system of units. Finally, we can convert in British system.
Given:
Volumetric flow rate:
Inlet temperature:
Outlet temperature:
Pressure (constant): p0 = 1.013 bar
Relative humidity: = 60%

Since the air is not saturated in water vapors, the amount of vapors behaves like the superheated steam. The partial pressure of these vapors in the air mixture is:
(1)
where ps1 = saturation pressure corresponding to T1.
From Steam Tables, we find on the saturation line at T1 = 355.4 K:
(2)
where h = specific enthalpy, = density, v = specific volume (v = 1/)

...

Solution Summary

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

Water is to be boiled at sea level in a 30-cm-diameter stainless steel pan placed on top of a 3-kW electric burner. If 60% of the heat generated by the burner is transferred to the water during boiling, determine the rate of evaporation of water. See Figure 2-39 attached.
Please show steps.Thanks.

If we add 10 grams of steam at 100 C to and 0.5 grams of ice at 0 degree C to 170 grams of water at 25 C, what will be the final temperature of the mixture, assuming that all thermal exchanges take place within this system? The heats of vaporizationand fusion for water are about 2250 J/gram and 335 J/gram.

Steam at 100C is added to ice at 0C.The mass of the steam is 10g.The mass of ice is 50g. What is the final temperature of the mixture?
I know the conversion of steam to water is Ms(2.26x10^6J/kg)
How does this problem work?

Calculate the amount of heat that must be absorbed by 10.0 g of ice at -20.0 degrees C to convert it to liquid water at 60.0 degree C.
Specific heat (ice) = 2.1 j/g degree C
Specific heat (water) delta H (fus)= 6.0 kJ/mol

It takes 1 calorie of heat to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius at sea level. This is referred to as the _____ of water.
a. heat of fusion
b. heat of vaporization
c. specific heat
d. heat of transformation
e. heat of homeostasis

A perfectly insulated container contains 70 g of waterand has a small heater immersed in water. The temperature of the water is 40 degrees Celsius, and the heater is connected to a 12V battery via a switch. When the heater is switched on, an electric current of 13A flows through its heating element and the temperature of the w
