Thanks JeffersonJ, I knew I wasn't using that example (specific heat transfer) 100% correctly, but it was the only one my brain could come up with at the time to possibly demonstrate the point I was trying to make.
I am trying to remember the practical calc's we used when comparing overall heat transfer in condensers (when you know the surface area, surface area, and flow characetristics, along with the enthalpy of the steam and cooling water). That would show you *without structural mods* (like I said in my first post) that using an immersion chiller with a fixed volume blah blah blah.
I'm going to go beat another dead horse. Yeast starters, anyone?
