ABSTRACT The goal of experiment number one “Impulse Turbine” was to test and evaluate the performance of an impulse turbine F800 made by P.A Hilton. The performance evaluation was performed by mathematically calculating the shaft horsepower and torque from data taken during the experiment, at different pressures and shaft speeds. In order to find the turbine efficiency, thermodynamic principles had to be used. One of the principles used was the first law of thermodynamics. Using this law the team was able to conclude that the torque of the turbine decreased as the shaft velocity increased, and at the same time the shaft power output augmented. The change in temperature between the inlet and exhaust air of the turbine was different due to change in enthalpies. Heat loss during the process
