What we have is C.V. Condenser. Steady state with no shaft work term. As usual, we're writing energy and entropy equations.

$\textbf{Energy Equation:}$

$\dot{m} \cdot h_i + \dot{Q} = \dot{m} \cdot h_e$

$\textbf{Entropy Equation:}$

$\dot{m} \cdot s_i + \frac{\dot{Q}}{T} + \dot{S}_{gen} = \dot{m} \cdot s_e$
