Steam at 250oC and 1 MPa enters a compressor at a steady rate of 2 m3 /s with a velocity of 0.1 m/s. The device uses 6500 kJ/s of energy to compress the steam to a temperature of 500oC and a pressure of 4 MPa. Assuming that this device is adiabatic and that you can ignore potential energy changes, calculate the steam velocity and mass flow rate at the exit of the compressor.

A 1.2 m3 rigid tank initially contains steam at 8 MPa and 400 ◦C. The steam slowly comes out through a hole at the bottom until the pressure drops to P0 while keeps the temperature constant. Making the pertinent considerations determines: a) the heat transferred, in kJ when P0 = 2 MPa. b) graph the heat transfer, in kJ, versus P0 from 0.5 to 8.0 MPa
