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.
