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 steam power plant runs on a reheat Rankine cycle. Steam enters both the high and low pressure turbines at 500oC. The maximum and minimum pressures of the cycle are 10 MPa and 10 kPa, respectively. Steam leaves the condenser as a saturated liquid. The moisture content of the steam at the exit of the low-pressure turbine is 4% if the actual expansion process is adiabatic; 8.5% if the ideal expansion process is isentropic. The isentropic efficiencies of the high-pressure...
