Steam is to be condensed in the condenser of a steam power plant at a temperature of 60°C with cooling water from a nearby lake, which enters the tubes of the condenser at 18°C at a rate of 75 kg/s and leaves at 27°C. Assuming the condenser to be perfectly insulated, determine (a) the rate of condensation of the steam and (b) the rate of entropy generation in the condenser.
