Water at p1 = 20 bar, T1
= 400oC enters a turbine operating at steady state and
exits at p2 = 1.5 bar, T2 =
230oC. The water mass flow rate is 4000 kg/hour. Stray
heat transfer and kinetic and potential energy effects are
negligible.
Determine the power produced by the turbine, in kW, and the rate of
entropy production in the turbine, in kW/K.

Soru 5) An uninsulated steam pipe with an outside diameter of 57
mm passes through a room in the basement. If the pressure of the
saturated steam is 200 kPa and the room temperature is 15
oC, compare the results by calculating the amount of
heat transfer from 1 m of the pipe to the room separately using
natural convection and condensation heat transfer routes. Take the
pipe surface temperature 120 oC.
