In a parallel flow heat exchanger operating under steady state, the heat capacity rates (product of specific heat at constant pressure and mass flow rate) of the hot and cold fluid are equal. The hot fluid, flowing at $$1kg/sec$$ with $$sp.$$ heat $$= 4kJ/kgK,$$ enters the heat exchanger at $${102^ \circ }C$$ while the cold fluid has an inlet temperature of $${15^ \circ }C$$. The overall heat transfer coefficient for the heat exchanger is estimated to be $$1\,\,kW/{m^2}K$$ and the corresponding heat transfer surface area is $$5{m^2}$$. Neglect heat transfer between the heat exchanger and the ambient.

The heat exchanger is characterized by the following relation $$2\varepsilon = 1 - Exp\left( { - 2NTU} \right).$$ The exit temp (in $$^ \circ C$$) for the cold fluid is

A
$$45$$
B
$$55$$
C
$$65$$
D
$$75$$

Hot oil is cooled from $${80^ \circ }C$$ to $${50^ \circ }C$$ in an oil cooler which uses air as the coolant. The air temperature rises from $${30^ \circ }C$$ to $${40^ \circ }C$$. the designer uses a $$LMTD$$ value of $${26^ \circ }C$$. the type of heat exchanger is
A
parallel flow
B
double pipe
C
counter flow
D
