A gas mixture having a molar analysis of 60% O2 and 40% N2 enters an insulated compressor operating at steady state at 1 bar, 208C with a mass flow rate of 0.5 kg/s and iscompressed to 5.4 bar. Kinetic and potential energy effectsare negligible. For an isentropic compressor efficiency of78%, determine(a) the temperature at the exit, in 8C.(b) the power required, in kW.(c) the rate of entropy production, in kW/K.
