Aerospace 312 –Homework Set No. 5 Assigned: March 30, 2010 D. K. McLaughlin Due: April 7, 2010 Problem 1. At the nose of a missile in flight, the pressure and temperature of the air are 5.6 atm and 850ºR, respectively. Calculate the density and specific volume for this condition. (Note: 1 atm is understood to be 1 standard atmosphere = 2216 lb/ft^2.) Problem 2. For a calorically perfect gas, derive the relation c p – c v = R. Problem 3. Our high pressure supply for the jet noise facility has two cylindrical storage tanks each of 5 ft. in diameter and 18 ft. high. Calculate the volume of each tank and the mass of air when the tanks are pressurized to 195 psig. Express your answer in both English

Air at standard conditions enters a compressor at 75 m/s and leaves at an absolute pressure and temperature of 200 kPa and 345 K, respectively, and speed of 125 m/s. The flow rate is 1 kg/s. The cooling water around the compressor removes 18 kJ/kg of heat from the air going through the compressor. Determine the power required by the compressor. (Answer: 80 kW) Problem 5. Assume that the flow of air through a given duct is isentropic. At one point in the duct, the pressure and temperature are p 1 = 1800 lb/ft 2 and T 1 = 500 °R, respectively. At a second point, the temperature is T 2 = 400° R. Calculate the pressure and density at this second point....
