K. Calculate the area of theheat exchanger using (a) the LMTD approach and (b) the effectiveness – NTUmethod. (c) If the water flow rate is reduced by half, while the gas flow rate ismaintained constant along with the fluid inlet temperatures. Calculate the percentagereduction in heat transfer as a result of this reduced flow rate. Assume that the overallheat transfer coefficient remains the same. [Ans: (a) 37.8 m
