Reconsider Prob. 14–146. Using EES (or other) software, plot the water temperature as a function of the relative humidity of air as the relative humidity varies from 10 to 100 percent, and discuss the results.
Data from problem 146
Jugs made of porous clay were commonly used to cool water in the past. A small amount of water that leaks out keeps the outer surface of the jug wet at all times, and hot and relatively dry air flowing over the jug causes this water to evaporate. Part of the latent heat of evaporation comes from the water in the jug, and the water is cooled as a result. If the environment conditions are 1 atm, 30°C, and 35 percent relative humidity, determine the temperature of the water when steady conditions are reached.
