Show that Tf T1T2 when the heat engine produces the maximum possible work. Answer: 82.0 kg/s 7–147 Refrigerant-134a at 140 kPa and 10°C is compressed by an adiabatic 0.5-kW compressor to an exit state of 700 kPa and 60°C. Neglecting the changes in kinetic and potential energies, determine (a) the isentropic efficiency of the compressor, (b) the volume flow rate of the refrigerant at the compressor inlet, in L/min, and (c) the maximum volume flow rate at the inlet conditions that this adiabatic 0.5-kW compressor can handle without violating the second law. 7–148E Helium gas enters a nozzle whose isentropic efficiency is 94 percent with a low velocity, and it exits at 14 psia, 180°F, and 1000 ft/s. Determine the pressure and temperature at the nozzle inlet. 7–149 An adiabatic air compressor is to be powered by a direct-coupled adiabatic steam turbine that is also driving a generator. St...
