For a heat exchanger, $$\Delta {T_{\max }}$$ is the maximum temperature difference and $$\Delta {T_{\min }}$$ is the minimum temperature difference between the two fluids. $$LMTD$$ is the log mean temperature difference. $${C_{\min }}$$ and $${C_{\max }}$$ are the minimum and the maximum heat capacity rates. The maximum possible heat transfer $$\left( {{Q_{\max }}} \right)$$ between the two fluids is
A
$${C_{\min }}LMTD$$
B
$${C_{\min }}\Delta {T_{\max }}$$
C
$${C_{\max }}\Delta {T_{\max }}$$
D
$${C_{\max }}\Delta {T_{\min }}$$
