Unformatted text preview: b) At this rotational speed, what is the relative Mach number at the tip of the fan blade? [ Note: If you did not attend one of the lectures where we discussed the engine, the low-speed spool is the shaft that holds the fan blades and the first three stages of the compressor along with the low pressure turbine. The high-speed spool is on a concentric shaft outside of the low speed shaft. It holds the high pressure compressor and the high pressure turbine. You can see which parts are attached to the low speed spool by gently moving the fan back and forth .]...
