Consider a parallel-flow heat exchanger with area $${A_p}$$ and a counter-flow heat exchanger with area $${A_c}.$$ In both the heat exchangers, the hot stream flowing at $$1$$ $$kg/s$$ cools from $$80{}^ \circ C$$ to $$50{}^ \circ C$$. For the cold stream in both the heat exchangers, the flow rate and the inlet temperature are $$2$$ $$kg/s$$ and $$10{}^ \circ C$$, respectively. The hot and cold streams in both the heat exchangers are of the same fluid. Also, both the heat exchangers have the same overall heat transfer coefficient. The ratio $${A_c}/{A_p}$$ is ______________

In a concentric counter flow heat exchanger, water flows through the inner tube at $${25^ \circ }C$$ and leaves at $${42^ \circ }C$$. The engine oil enters at $${100^ \circ }C$$ and flows in the annular flow passage. The exit temperature of the engine oil is $${50^ \circ }C.$$ Mass flow rate of water and the engine oil are $$1.5kg/s$$ and $$1$$ $$kg/s,$$ respectively. The specific heat of water and oil are $$4178$$ $$J/kg.K$$ and $$2130$$ $$J/kg.K,$$ respectively. The effectiveness of this heat exchanger is _________.

A double-pipe counter-flow heat exchanger transfers heat between two water streams. Tube side water at $$19$$ liter/s is heated from $${10^ \circ }C$$ to $${38^ \circ }C$$. Shell side water at $$25$$ liter/s is entering at $${46^ \circ }C$$. Assume constant properties of water; density is $$1000\,kg/{m^3}$$ and specific heat is $$4186$$ $$J/kg.K.$$ The $$LMTD$$ (in $${}^ \circ C$$) is ____________.
