A mixture having a molar analysis of 50% CO2, 33.3% CO, and 16.7% O2 enters a
compressor operating at steady state at 37 oC, 1 bar, 40 m/s with a mass flow rate of 1
kg/s and exits at 237 oC, 30 m/s. The rate of heat transfer from the compressor to its
surroundings is 5% of the power input.
a) Neglecting potential energy effects, determine the power input to the
compressor, in kW.
b) If the compression is polytropic, evaluate the polytropic exponent n and the exit
pressure, in bar.
