Unformatted text preview: beginning of the compression stroke the intake air has a temperature and pressure of 40 o C and 90 kN/m 2 , respectively. The maximum temperature of the cycle is 1400 o C. Determine: 1. The temperature and pressure at each of the process points of the cycle; 2. The consumption of fuel (the air/fuel mass ratio) per kilogram of air if the calorific value of the fuel is 43 MJ/kg; 3. The work done per kilogram of air 4. The thermal efficiency of the engine 5. The Carnot efficiency within the cycle temperature limits 6. Draw the cycle on a p-V diagram...
