Solution of Homework Assignment 12 1. 2. Argon gas expands in a turbine. The exit temperature of the argon for a power output of 250 kW is to be determined. Assumptions 1 This is a steady-flow process since there is no change with time. 2 Potential energy changes are negligible. 3 The device is adiabatic and thus heat transfer is negligible. 4 Argon is an ideal gas with constant

The constant pressure specific heat of Ar is c p = 0.5203 kJ/kg· C (Table A-2a) Analysis There is only one inlet and one exit, and thus m m m 1 2 .
