Problem 79P

Analyzing Thermodynamic Cycles

The thermal efficiency of a power cycle operating as shown in Fig. 2.17a is 30%, and Qout is 20 kJ. Determine the net work developed and the heat transfer Qin, each in kJ.

Fig. 2.17 Schematic diagrams of two important classes of cycles. (a) Power cycles.

Solution 79P

Step 1 of 4

Here our aim is to calculate the amount of heat transferred and the net work developed in kiloJoules.
