what is the work output of the turbine per mole of gas. The turbine operates adiabatically with an efficiency of 77%. Assuming the combustion products to be an ideal-gas mixture with a heat capacity of 32 Jmol-1K-1. and what is the temperature of the gases discharging from the turbine? .5 bar.Combustion products from a burner enter a gas turbine at 10 bar and 950⁰C and discharge at 1.

•Given:   T1 = 1223.5 bar η = 0.15 K Cp = 32 J∙mol-1∙K-1 P1 = 10 bar P2 = 1. T2 .77 Required: .

77 10 bar 1223.Turbin e η= 0.15K Cp = 32 J∙mol-1∙K-1 BURNER 1.5 bar T2 = ?   .

= 0 .•Equation   used: Isentropic process.

Another equation used: .•  Taking its exponential form.

•  Substituting the equation for Ws(isentropic) = CpT1 .

44237 J∙mol-1 Ws(isentropic) = -15231 J∙mol-1 .15) Ws(isentropic) = -15231.•  Solution: Ws(isentropic) = CpT1 Ws(isentropic) = (32)(1223.

77)(-15231.44 J∙mol-1) Ws = -11728.21062 J∙mol-1 Ws = -11728 J∙mol-1 .Ws = η∙Ws(isentropic) Ws = (0.

6434181 K T2 = 856.•  T2 = T 1 + T2 = 1223.15K + T2 = 856.64 K .
