Abstract

This article demonstrates the principles of conservation of energy, specifically heat and mass balances, through the use of a laboratory air conditioning unit and state-of-the-art data acquistion techniques. Temperatures, pressures, and flowrates in the air conditioning unit are measured at various test conditions, and experimental data is captured with a PC-based data acquisition system. Heat and mass balance equations are derived for the system, and the experimental data and equations are combined and analyzed with the Engineering Equation Solver software. The measurement and analysis processes demonstrate heat and mass balances in the context of a modern laboratory environment.
