“How can we cool a large flow of water?”

 

Water is often used to cool buildings. However, during the process, it absorbs heat from its surroundings, thereby warming it up and making it less usable for future use. So how can we ensure that this water can be cooled down to usable levels? Well, let us use our engineering mindset to find out. We know that if water comes into contact with surrounding air, it will cool down a bit, and some may even evaporate. So what if we were to take our stream, move it through condensers, causing some to evaporate and the rest to cool down to a workable state? Well, this technology is known as cooling towers and is used in industrial processes all over the world.
