Answer #1

An ice-making machine operates on the ideal vapor-compression
cycle, using R-134a. The refrigerant enters the compressor as
saturated vapor at 140 kPa and leaves the condenser as saturated
liquid at 600 kPa. Water enters the ice machine at 13oC and leaves
as ice at -4oC, while removing heat at 393 kJ per kg of water.
Estimate the mass flow rate of the refrigerant and the power input
to the ice machine for an ice production rate of 7 kg/h.

An ideal vapor-compression refrigeration cycle operates at
steady state with Refrigerant 134a as the working fluid. Saturated
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.
Determine the compressor power, in kW.

Refrigerant 134a is the working fluid in a vapor-compression
heat pump system with a heating capacity of 60,000 Btu/h. The
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
flows through the evaporator and condenser are negligible. The
compression process is adiabatic, and the temperature at the
compressor exit is 180°F. Determine (a) the mass...

Consider a 280 kJ/min refrigeration system that operates on an
ideal vapor-compression refrigeration cycle with refrigerant-134a
as the working fluid. The refrigerant enters the compressor as

below. Determine the quality of the refrigerant at the end of the
throttling process.

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

compressor at 2.6 bar, and saturated liquid exits the condenser,
which operates at 8 bar. Determine for an isentropic compressor
efficiency of 85%: (a) the refrigerant mass flow rate, in kg/s. (b)
the magnitude of the compressor power, in kW. (c) the coefficient
of performance.

Refrigerant 134a is the working fluid in an ideal
