A nuclear power plant generates waste thermal energy at a rate of 1000 MW = 1000 × 106 W. Assume the heat of vaporization of a water is 2.256× 106 J/kg.
If this energy is transferred by hot water passing through tubes in the water in an evaporative cooling tower, how much water must evaporate to cool the plant per second?(delta m/ delta t)
How much water must evaporate to cool the plant per day? (delta m/ delta t)
