Isentropic efficiencies of nozzles are typically above 90 percent, and nozzle efficiencies above 95 percent are not uncommon.

If the isentropic efficiency of the nozzle is 92 percent, determine (a) the maximum possible exit velocity, (b) the exit temperature, and (c) the actual velocity of the air. Assume constant specific heats for air. s2s = s1 s FIGURE 7–54 The h-s diagram of the actual and isentropic processes of an adiabatic nozzle. cen54261_ch07.qxd 11/18/03 9:57 AM Page 318 318 FUNDAMENTALS OF THERMAL-FLUID SCIENCES T, K 1 950 P1 = 200 kPa T1 = 950 K 1 << 2 Pa 0k 20 Actual process Isentropic process AIR NOZZLE ηN...
