The exit area of the diffuser is 1 ft2 . Determine (a) the mass flow rate of the steam and (b) the rate of entropy generation during this process. Assume an ambient temperature of 77°F. 7–130 Steam expands in a turbine steadily at a rate of 25,000 kg/h, entering at 8 MPa and 450°C and leaving at 50 kPa as saturated vapor. If the power generated by the turbine is 4 MW, determine the rate of entropy generation for this process. Assume the surrounding medium is at 25°C. Answer: 8.38 kW/K 8 MPa 450°C 7–133 A 0.4-m3 rigid tank is filled with saturated liquid water at 200°C. A valve at the bottom of the tank is now opened, and one-half of the total mass is withdrawn from the tank in the liquid form. Heat is transferred to water from a source at 250°C so that the temperature in the tank remains con...
