Unformatted text preview: (b) Calculate the maximum temperature of the cycle. (c) Determine the thermal eﬃciency. Assume constant speciﬁc heats at room temperature. Answers: 3360 K, 21%. 3. Consider a Carnot cycle executed in a closed system of 0.003 kg air. The temperature limits of the cycle are 300 K and 900 K, and the minimum and maximum pressures in the cycle are 20 and 2000 kPa. Assuming constant speciﬁc heats, determine the net work output per cycle. 4. An ideal gas Carnot cycle uses air as the working ﬂuid and receives heat from 1027 ◦ C. The cycle operates at 1500 cycles/minute, and has a compression ratio of 12. Determine the heat rejection temperature, the thermal eﬃciency, and the amount of high–temperature heat input, per cycle, required for a power output of 500 kW. Answers: 481 K, 63%, 31.8 kJ. 1...
