Calculating the heat transfer rate and the rate that entropy is produced in a gear box.
A gearbox operating under steady state conditions recieves 24 hp along the input shaft and delivers 10hp along the output shaft. The outer surface of the gearbox is at 110F and has an area of 1.4 ft^2. The temperature of the surroundings away from the immediate vicinity of the gearbox is 70 F. For the gear box, determine a) the heat transfer rate in BTU/s and b) the rate at which entropy is produced in BTU/(Rs).

#### The power developed by the turbine

A gas turbine has a mixture of 17% CO2 , 60% N2 and 17% H2O on a molar basis enter at 1800°R and 116 psi and a mass flow rate of 4.41 lbm/s. The gas expands through the turbin

#### Exit temp of the air and the rate of heat transfer from air

Air enters the evaporator of an air conditioner at 14.7 psia, 90F, 200 ft3/min. R-134a at 20 psia, 30%  quality enters at 4 lbm/min and leaves as saturated vapor at the same p

#### Determine change in volume of helium from its initial volume
