ENGRD 221: E NGINEERING T HERMODYNAMICS Problem Set 5 Due February 27 th , 2009 (5 Questions) Question 1 (4.102): A simple steam power plant operates at steady state with water circulating through the components with a mass flow rate of 60kg/s. Figure 1 shows additional data at key points in the cycle. Stray heat transfer and kinetic and potential effects are negligible. Determine (a) the thermal efficiency and (b) the mass flow rate of cooling water though the condenser, in kg/s. Figure 1 Question 2 (5.18): A power cycle receives energy Q H by heat transfer from a hot reservoir at T H =1500 o R and rejects energy Q C by heat transfer to a cold reservoir at T c = 500 o R. For eash of the following cases, determine whether the cycle operates reversibly, irreversibly, or is impossible. (a) Q H = 900 Btu, W cycle = 450 Btu (b) Q H = 900 Btu, Q C = 300 Btu (c) W cycle = 600 Btu, Q C = 400 Btu (d) η cycle = 70%

    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.
