A simple gas turbine power cycle operating at steady state with air as the working substance is shown in Fig. P4.106. The cycle components include an air compressor mounted on the same shaft as the turbine. The air is heated in the highpressure heat exchanger before entering the turbine. The air exiting the turbine is cooled in the low-pressure heat exchanger before returning to the compressor. Kinetic and potentialeffects are negligible. The compressor and turbine areadiabatic. Using the ideal gas model for air, determine the (a)power required for the compressor, in hp, (b) power outputof the turbine, in hp, and (c) thermal efficiency of the cycle.
