vapor enters the compressor at 1 bar, and saturated liquid exits
the condenser at 4 bar. The mass flow rate of refrigerant is 8.5
kg/min.

Consider a 280 kJ/min refrigeration system that operates on an

Refrigerant 134a is the working fluid in a vapor-compression

condenser operates at 240 lbf/in.2, and the evaporator temperature
is 0°F. The refrigerant is a saturated vapor at the evaporator exit
and a liquid at 110°F at the condenser exit. Pressure drops in the

compression process is adiabatic, and the temperature at the
compressor exit is 180°F. Determine (a) the mass...
