Steam enters a steam turbine with a velocity of 40 m/sec. Enthalpy

2500 kJ/kg and leaves with velocity of 90 m/sec and enthalpy of
1 2030kJ/kg. Heat loss from the turbine to the surrounding is
250kJ/min. and steam flow rate is 5000 kg/hr. Neglect the change of
potential energy. Find the power developed by turbine in KW.

0.25 kg of perfect gas is heated from 100C to 325C at a constant

pressure of 300 kN/m2. It is then cooled at constant volume to the
initial temperature find the average change in entropy. Take CP =
1.005 kg/kg.K, Cv = 0.718 kg/kg.K.

500 KJ of heat from an infinite source at 1000 K is supplied to 2 kg

of gas Initially at 2 bar and 300K in a closed tank. Find the loss in
available energy due to this heat transfer. Take surrounding
temperature as 300 K and CP for gas is 800 J/Kg.K.
A system at 500 k receives 7200 kJ/min from a source at 1000 k. The
temperature of atmospheres is 300 k. Assuming that the temperature

An inventor claims that he has developed a heat engine which absorbs
1200kJ and 800kJ respectively at 800K and 600K. Rejects 600kJ and
10 200kJ of heat to reservoirs at temperatures 400K and 300K the engine
