is (3.3 + 1.0) = 4.3 Btu/ft' hr. The heat flow to the duct air
= density of air, 0.083 lb/ft3 (fig. 4-30)
must equal the heat removed by the duct air.
= specific heat of air at constant pressure, 0.24
Heat added = heat removed
= temperature rise in duct air, 12F.

Substitution of appropriate values gives a required air
Thus, the average duct air velocity required to
extract this quantity (4.3 Btu/ft hr) of heat is determined
by the equation as shown below.
