I'm working on a heat exchanger which has the purpose of cooling a semi-enclosed area. My question concerns how much the electronic devices in the enclosed area will increase the temperature. From what I remember of Thermodynamics, whatever the rated power consumption of the device is should be how much energy is in turn increasing the temperature of the area.
I'm almost sure of my answer on this, but I'm looking for some backup as well, because one of the higher-ups is challenging this idea.
