Unformatted text preview: Chapter 10 10-8C Heat rejected decreases; everything else increases. 10-12C The boiler exit pressure will be (a) lower than the boiler inlet pressure in actual cycles, and (b) the same as the boiler inlet pressure in ideal cycles. 10-16 A simple ideal Rankine cycle with water as the working fluid operates between the specified pressure limits. The maximum thermal efficiency of the cycle for a given quality at the turbine exit is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 Kinetic and potential energy changes are negligible. Analysis For maximum thermal efficiency, the quality at state 4 would be at its minimum of 85% (most closely approaches the Carnot cycle), and the properties at state 4 would be (Table A-5) K kJ/kg 7440 . 6 ) 8234 . 6 )( 85 .
