Chapter 10
VAPOR AND COMBINED POWER CYCLES
n Chap. 9 we discussed gas power cycles for which the working fluid remains a gas throughout the entire cycle. In this chapter, we consider vapor power cycles in which the working fluid is alternatively vaporized
Chapter 4
ENERGY ANALYSIS OF CLOSED SYSTEMS
n Chap. 2, we considered various forms of energy and energy transfer, and we developed a general relation for the conservation of energy principle or energy balance. Then in Chap. 3, we learned how to determine
