Determine the heat capacity, Mechanical Engineering

A chemical works produces an aqueous effluent at above ambient temperature. The Environmental Agency insists that before the effluent is discharged to the river, it must be cooled.

A forced draught counter current cooling tower is available. When tested it provided the following results:

Determine the approximate number of gas transfer units achieved.

DATA:

Heat capacity of liquid water: 4.19 kJ kg K .

[It may be assumed that the resistance to heat transfer in the liquid phase is negligible].
