Problem 20E

Why is it advantageous to use steam that is as hot as possible in a steam-driven turbine?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 20E As the name suggests, the steam-driven turbine depends on steam for its operation. The function of this turbine is to convert thermal energy to mechanical energy. The hotter is the steam, the more is the thermal energy available for the turbine. The more is the thermal energy for the turbine, it can convert more of it to mechanical energy and thus increase its efficiency.
