the process is reversible. 1.4 MPa Isentropic
expansion 2 SOLUTION We take the turbine as the system (Fig. 7–15). This is a control volume since mass crosses the system boundary during the process. We note that
there is only one inlet and one exit, and thus m 1 m 2 m .
Assumptions 1 This is a steady-flow process since there is no change with time
at any point and thus mCV 0, ECV 0, and SCV 0. 2 The process is reversible. 3 Kinetic and potential energies are negligible. 4 The turbine is adiabatic and thus there is no heat transfer.
Analysis The power output of the turbine is determined from the rate form of
