14. A 5-m × 6-m × 8-m room is to be heated by an electrical

resistance heater placed in a short duct in the room.
Initially, the room is at 15℃, and the local atmospheric
pressure is 98 kPa. The room is losing heat steadily to the
outside at a rate of 200 kJ/min. A 300-W fan circulates the
air steadily through the duct and the electric heater at an
average mass flow rate of 50 kg/min. The duct can be
assumed to be adiabatic, and there is no air leaking in or
out of the room. If it takes 18 minutes for the room air to
