8. An ammonia based refrigeration system with a refrigeration capacity of 100TR (1TR=3.5167 kW) operates at an evaporating temperature of –36 o C (saturation pressure = 0.8845 bar) and a condensing temperature of 30 o C (saturation pressure = 11.67 bar). Assume the system to operate on a single stage saturated (SSS) cycle. The compression process may be assumed to be isentropic. Under these conditions, the following property data are available: Enthalpy of saturated vapour at the exit of evaporator, h = 1414 kJ/kg 1 Enthalpy of saturated liquid at the exit of condenser,h = 341.8 kJ/kg 4 Isentropic index of compression, γ = 1.304 The compressor is an 8-cylinder, reciprocating type with a clearance ratio of 0.05 and speed of 1750 RPM. The stroke-to-bore ratio is 0.8. In the absence of superheat data, the refrigerant vapour may be assumed to behave as a perfect gas. The molecular weight of ammonia is 17.03 kg/kmol. Fnd: a) Power input to the compressor b) COP and cycle (second law) efficiency c) Compressor discharge temperature, and d)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
