Unformatted text preview: 5-34 Air is decelerated in an adiabatic diffuser. The velocity at the exit is to be determined. Assumptions1This is a steady-flow process since there is no change with time. 2Air is an ideal gas with constant specific heats. 3 Potential energy changes are negligible. 4 There are no work interactions. 5The diffuser is adiabatic.PropertiesThe specific heat of air at the average temperature of (20+90)/2=55C =328 K is cp= 1.007 kJ/kgK (Table A-2b). AnalysisThere is only one inlet and one exit, and thus mmm&&&==21. We take diffuser as the system, which is a control volume since mass crosses the boundary.
