Unformatted text preview: ir and (b) the power required to drive the compressor. 7–103 Air is compressed by an adiabatic compressor from 95 kPa and 27°C to 600 kPa and 277°C. Assuming variable specific heats and neglecting the changes in kinetic and potential energies, determine (a) the isentropic efficiency of the compressor and (b) the exit temperature of air if the process were reversible. Answers: (a) 81.9 percent, (b) 505.5 K 7–104E Argon gas enters an adiabatic compressor at 20 psia and 90°F with a velocity of 60 ft/s, and it exits at 200 psia and 240 ft/s. If the isentropic efficiency of the compressor is 80 percent, determine (a) the exit temperature of the argon and (b) the work input to the compressor. 7–98 Argon gas enters an adiabatic turbine at 800°C and 1.5 MPa at a rate of 80 kg/min and exhausts at 200 kPa. If the power output of the turbine is 370 kW, determine the isentropic efficiency of the turbine. 7–105 Carbon dioxide enters an adiabatic compressor at 100 kPa and 300 K at a rate of 2.2 kg/s and exits at 600 kPa and 450 K. Neglecting the kinetic energy changes, determine the isentropic efficiency of the compressor. 7–99E Combustion gases ente...
