2- A proposal is made to use a geothermal supply of hot water to operate a steam turbine, as shown in Fig. 1. The highpressure water at 1.5 MPa, 180C, is throttled into a flash evaporator chamber, which forms liquid and vapor at a lower
pressure of 400 kPa. The liquid is discarded while the saturated vapor feeds the turbine and exits at 10 kPa, 90%
quality. If the turbine should produce 1 MW, find the required mass flow rate of hot geothermal water in kilograms per
hour (neglect the change of the kinetic energy and potential energy) .
3- A two- stage compressor having an intercooler takes in air, 300 K and 100 kPa, and compresses it to 2 Mpa, as shown in
fig. 2 . the cooler then cools the air to 340 k, the exit pressure of the second stage is 15 MPa. Both stage are adiabatic
and revesible. Find the specific work. Compare this to the work required with no intercooler.

From table state 1

h1= 763.05 kJ/kg
h1= hf@400kPa + X . hfg@400kPa = 604.66 + X . 2133.4 = 763.05 X = 0.07439 = mv /mtotal = m2 /m1
From table state 2
h2 = hg@400kPa = 2738.1 kJ/kg

From table state 3

h3 = hf@10kPa + X . hfg@10kPa = 191.81 + 0.9 2392.1 = 2344.69 kJ/kg

m2= 1000/(2738.1-2344.69)=2.541 kg/s

X = 0.07439 = m2 /m1 m1= m2 /X = 2.541 / 0.07439 = 34.15 kg/s = 122968.14 kg/h
