Unformatted text preview: steady rate of 100 kg/min at 20 C and 3 bar. Steam enters at 320 C and 3 bar. The mixture leaves the chamber at 90 C and 3 bar. What is the rate of entropy generation (kW/K) for the chamber? SP32: Air at 100 kPa and 17 C flows steadily through a compressor at the rate of 5 kg/min. The pressure after compression is 700 kPa. Consider variable specific heats for air. (a) Determine the minimum power input (kW) for the compression process if compression occurs adibatically. (b) What is the minimum power input (kW) for the compression process if compression occurs isothermally?...
