Question

Helium is steadily flowing through a duct. At the entrance of the duct the gas is at 40 psia and 120 oF, flowing at a rate of 20 ft/s as a result of a fan in the duct. At the duct exit, the helium is at 190 oF and 30 psia. The duct has a constant cross-sectional area of 0.5ft2. Calculate the following:

a. Volumetric flow rate at the inlet [ft3/min]

b. Mass flow rate [lbm/s]

c. Velocity at the exit [ft/s]

Answer #1

still you have any doubt ask me in comment section. I am there to help you...

R with an initial velocity of 10 ft/s. The helium leaves the nozzle
at 782 degrees R and 29 psia.
(a) What is the velocity of the helium at the nozzle's exit?
(ft/s)
(b) What is the isentropic efficiency of the nozzle? (%)
(c) What is the rate of entropy generation for this process?
(Btu/lbm R)

Air is heated as it flows through a constant diameter
tube. The air enters the tube at 50 psia and 80 F with an average
velocity of 10 ft/s at the entrance. The air leaves at 45 psia and
255 F.
a) Sketch the control volume
b) Determine the average velocity of the air (ft/s) at the
exit
c) If 23 lbm/min of air is to be heated, what diameter (in.) tube
is required?

Nitrogen gas at 60 kPa and 78C enters an adiabatic diffuser
steadily with a velocity of 275 m/s and leaves at 85 kPa and 278C.
Determine (a) the exit velocity of the nitrogen and (b) the ratio
of the inlet to exit area A1/A2. Reconsider Using EES (or other)
software, investigate the effect of the inlet veloc- ity on the
exit velocity and the ratio of the inlet-to-exit area. Let the
inlet velocity vary from 210 to 350 m/s. Plot...

Oil at a rate of 300 gal/min is flowing steadily from tank A to
tank B through 3000 ft of 3-in schedule 40 pipe (Appendix A.2). The
inside diameter (ID) of 3-in schedule pipe is 3.068 in. The line
contains two globe valves, a swing check valve, an a nine 90oC
elbows. The oil has a density of 62.3 lbm/ft3 and a viscosity of 50
cP. The levels of the free surfaces are the same in both tanks.
Tank B...

Nitrogen gas at 50 kPa and 7°C enters an adiabatic diffuser
steadily with a velocity of 180 m/s and leaves at 109 kPa and 22°C.
Determine (a) the exit velocity of the nitrogen and (b) the ratio
of the inlet to exit area A1/A2

An unknown ideal gas enters a 25 cm-diameter pipe steadily at
250 kPa and 47C with a velocity of 5 m/s. The ideal gas gains heat
as it flows and leaves the pipe at 77C and 225 kPa. The gas
constant of the ideal gas is R=0.285 kJ/kg.K. Determine:
a) the volume flow rate at the inlet
b) the mass flow rate
c) the velocity at the exit

1) A nozzle is a device for increasing the velocity of a
steadily flowing stream of fluid. At the inlet to a certain nozzle
the enthalpy of the fluid is 3025 kJ/kg and the velocity is 60 m/s.
At the exit from the nozzle the enthalpy is 2790 kJ/kg. The nozzle
is horizontal and there is negligible heat loss from
it.
(i) Find the velocity at the nozzle exit.
(ii) If the inlet area is 0.1 m2 and specific volume...

Refrigerant-134a enters a diffuser steadily as saturated vapour at
600 kPa with a velocity of 160 m/s, and it leaves at 700 kPa and
40°C. The refrigerant is gaining heat at a rate of 2 kJ/s as it
passes through the diffuser : determine
(a- the exit velocity
(b- the mass flow rate of the refrigerant.
If the exit area is twice the inlet area (A2=2A1),

The following gas-phase reaction takes
place in a plug flow reactor (a tubular reactor) that has a
diameter of 6 inches and cross-sectional area of 0.0388
ft2: A --> B + C. The reaction rate depends only on
the concentration of A, CA, and has the following form:
rate of destruction of A = k * CA , where k= 0.12
s-1. The feed consists of pure A, and enters the reactor
at a volumetric flowrate of 0.193 ft3/s. Determine...

Assume that air is drawn steadily through a frictionless,
adiabatic converging‐diverging nozzle into a frictionless,
constant‐area duct with heat addition. The air enters the constant
area pipe section at a static pressure of 200 kPa, static
temperature of 500K, and velocity of 400 m/s. (a) If 500 kJ/kg is
removed from the flow, determine the static pressure, static
temperature and velocity of the flow leaving the duct. (b) What is
the maximum amount of heat addition for these inflow conditions?...
