    Correct Answer
    B. Desuperheating and condensing
    Explanation
    Inside the condenser, two processes take place: desuperheating and condensing. Desuperheating refers to the process of removing excess heat from the superheated vapor, reducing its temperature to the saturation point. Condensing, on the other hand, involves the transformation of the vapor into a liquid state by removing heat, resulting in the release of latent heat. These processes are essential in the condenser as they help in the transfer of heat from the vapor to the cooling medium, allowing the vapor to be converted back into a liquid state.

    The reciprocating refrigeration compressor is designed to remove

    • A.

      Vapor refrigerant from the condenser and decrease the pressure

    • B.

      Vapor refrigerant from the evaporator and increase the pressure

    • C.

      Liquid refrigerant from the condenser and increase the pressure

    • D.

      Liquid refrigerant from the evaporator and increase the pressure

    Correct Answer
    B. Vapor refrigerant from the evaporator and increase the pressure
    Explanation
    The reciprocating refrigeration compressor is designed to remove vapor refrigerant from the evaporator and increase the pressure. This is because the compressor plays a crucial role in the refrigeration cycle by compressing the low-pressure vapor refrigerant from the evaporator and raising its pressure. This high-pressure vapor refrigerant is then sent to the condenser where it releases heat and condenses into a high-pressure liquid refrigerant. Therefore, the compressor's function is to increase the pressure of the vapor refrigerant from the evaporator, not from the condenser or the liquid refrigerant.
