If the power output of the turbine is 8 MW, determine (a) the mass flow rate of the steam flowing through the turbine and (b) the isentropic efficiency of the turbine. Answers: (a) 8.25 kg/s, (b) 83.7 percent 7–102 Air enters an adiabatic compressor at 100 kPa and 17°C at a rate of 2.4 m3/s, and it exits at 257°C. The compressor has an isentropic efficiency of 84 percent. Neglecting the changes in kinetic and potential energies, determine (a) the exit pressure of a...
