In a counter-flow heat exchanger, water is heated at the rate of $1.5 \: kg/s$ from $40^{\circ}$ C to $80^{\circ} \: C$ by an oil entering at $120^{\circ}$ C and leaving at $60 ^{\circ}$ C. The specific heats of water and oil are $4.2 \: kJ/kg.K$ and $2 \:  kJ/kg.K$, respectively. The overall heat transfer coefficient is $400 W/m^{2}.K$. The required heat transfer surface area (in $m^{2}$) is

  1. $0.104$
  2. $0.022$
  3. $10.4$
  4. $21.84$
