Air enters a one-inlet, one-exit control volume at 6 bar, 500 K, and 30m/s through a flow of 28 cm2. At
the exit, the pressure is 3 bar, the temperature is 456.5 K, and the velocity is 300 m/s. The air behaves as
an ideal gas. For steady-state operation, determine
a) the mass flow rate in Kg/s
Given that there is one inlet and one exit, and a steady flow of gas;
Mass rate balance mµ1=mµ2=mµ
Mass flow rate mµ =Density ρ, * Volume flow rate Vµ
Volume flow rate Vµ = area A * Velocity average Vavg
Mass flow rate mµ =area A, * Velocity average Vavg * Density ρ
=0.0028m2 * 30 m/s * 4.1876kg/m3
=0.3518 kg/s
b) the exit flow area in cm
Area A = mass flow rate mµ
Velocity average * Density
=0.0005 m2
=5 cm2
Refrigerant 134a enters the evaporator of a refrigeration system operating at steady state -40C and
quality of 20% at a velocity of 7 m/s. At the exit, the refrigerant is a saturated vapor at a temperature of
-40C. The evaporator flow channel has constant diameter. If the mass flow rate of the entering
refrigerant is 0.1 Kg/s, determine
a) the diameter of the evaporator flow channel, in cm
b) the velocity at the exit in m/s.
Air pressure enters a compressor operating at steady state with a pressure of 14.7 lbf/in2 and a
volumetric flow rate of 8ft3/s. The air velocity in the exit pipe is 225ft3/s and the exit pressure is
150lbf/in2. If each unit mass of air passing from inlet to exit undergoes a process described by pv1.3 =
constant, determine the diameter of the exit pipe in inches.

Air enters a horizontal, constant-diameter heating duct operating at steady state at 290 K, 1 bar, with a
volumetric flow rate of 0.25 m3/s, and exits at 325 K, 0.95 bar. The flow area 0...

Top quality work from this tutor! I’ll be back!

It’s my second time using SP and the work has been great back to back :) The one and only resource on the Interwebs for the work that needs to be done!

Thanks, good work
