Spring 2006 1 ME 201 Thermodynamics Homework 22 Solution 1. An ideal vapor –compression refrigeration cycle with refrigerant 134a as the working fluid operates with an evaporator temperature of –20 ° C and a condenser pressure of 1.2 MPa. For a refrigerant flow rate of 3 kg/min determine: a. COP for the cycle b. Cooling load in kW for the cycle c. Carnot cycle COP for the given conditions Solution: We begin by nodding our layout.
