Air enters the diffuser of a ramjet engine (Fig. 9.27c) at 6 lbf/in.2 , 4208R, with a velocity of 1600 ft/s, and decelerates essentially to zero velocity. After combustion, the gases reach a temperature of 22008R before being discharged through the nozzle at 6 lbf/in.2 On the basis of an airstandard analysis, determine (a) the pressure at the diffuser exit, in lbf/in.2 (b) the velocity at the nozzle exit, in ft/s. Neglect kinetic energy except at the diffuser inlet and the nozzle exit. Assume combustion occurs at constant pressure and flow through the diffuser and nozzle is isentropic.
