Problem 138P

An air compressor compresses 15 L/s of air at  120 kPa and 20°C to 800 kPa and 300°C while consuming 6.2 kW of power. How much of this power is being used to increase the pressure of the air versus the power needed to move the fluid through the compressor?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step by step solutions Step 1 of 4GivenPressure of air at inlet of compressor,Temperature of air at inlet of compressor,The volume flow rate at the inlet,Pressure of air at exit of compressor,Temperature of air at exit of compressor,Power consumed by the compressor,
