discharge is 1.2 m3/sec, determine the capacity of air compressor.

A. 4.32 m3/sec C. 6.85 m3/sec

B. 3.33 m3/sec D. 7.42 m3/sec

SOLUTION:

P 1 V 1n = P 2 V 2n

n = 1 .4 (for standard ai r)

100(V1)1.4 = (600)(1.2)1.4

V1 = 4.315 m3/sec

suction is 0.1 m3/sec, what is the compressor power assuming n = 1.35 and suction pressure is
98 Kpa?

A. 21.67 KW C. 25.87 KW

B. 19.57 KW D. 10.45 KW

SOLUTION:

Nv = 1 + c – c[ (P2/P1) 1/n]

Nv = 1 + 0.05 - 0.05(400/98)1/1.4

Nv = 0.913

VD = π/4 D2 L N

VD = π/4 (0.355)2(0.381 )(300/60)

VD = 0.1885 m3/sec

V1 = 0.1885(0.913)

V1 = 0.17215 m3/sec

V1 = 619.75 m3 /hr
