Example 5-1 Carbon dioxide at 500°F and 210 psia enters a well- insulated turbine. The exit pressure is 5 psia and the mass flow rate is 22 lbm/s. If the work output is 850 hp, calculate the turbine efficiency. Solution: The actual work done by an adiabatic turbine is () 12 Wm hh =− ± ± 1 Btu enthalpy(CO2, 500) 3749 lbm hT == = Solve for h2, 21 W m ± ± 2 Btu 2544 h 850 hp 1 hp Btu Btu 3749 3776 lbm 3600 s lbm lbm 22 s1 h h ⎛⎞ ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ State 2s has the entropy of state 1 and the pressure of state
