16.050 Thermal Energy Recitation #5 – Fall 2002 Problem 1: Consider the turbine-exhaust nozzle combination of a jet engine shown schematically on the board. You are given the following system specifications: Turbine power output= 40 MW Mass flow= 75 kg/s P ta = 25 bar T ta = 1200 K P c = 1bar Turbine adiabatic efficiency= 0.8 Nozzle adiabatic efficiency= 0.95 You may assume air is the working fluid, and cp= 1kJ/kgK. Neglect the velocities at the turbine inlet and outlet. a) Sketch the processes on a T-s diagram. b) Find the nozzle exit velocity. c) Find the specific entropy change across each component.

Unformatted text preview: Page 1 of 1 Problem 2: Air enters a two-stage compressor at 100 kPa and 300 K and is compressed to 900 kPa. The pressure ratio across each stage is the same, and the air is cooled by removing 80 kW of heat from the flow between the two stages. Assuming each compressor has an adiabatic efficiency of 0.85, determine the power input to the compressors for a mass flow rate of 1 kg/s. What would your answer be if only one stage of compression were used between the same inlet and exit pressures? Neglect the velocities at both compressor inlets and outlets. Page 2 of 2...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
