Unformatted text preview: compression ratio of 8.5. It rejects its heat by way of cooling water that goes to a cooling tower. The cooling water enters the engine at 85 deg F and leaves at 100 deg F. What flow rate of cooling water is required in gallons per minute (gpm)? What size sch 40 steel pipe (inches) would you use to route this cooling water to and from the engine to the cooling tower? You can assume an ideal Otto cycle. 4. A 300kW electric generator is powered by a gasoline engine with a compression ratio of 10. The efficiency of the electric generator is 95%. Estimate the consumption of gasoline by this engine in gallons per hour....
