##### Reference no: EM13705490

Consider a 210 MW steam power plant that operates on a simple ideal Rankine cycle. Steam enters the turbine at 10 MPa and 500o C and is cooled in the condenser to a pressure of 10 kPa. Show the cycle on a T-s diagram with respect to the saturation lines and determine (a) the quality of steam at the turbine exit, (b) the thermal efficiency of the cycle, and (c) the mass flow rate of the steam.

#### Calculate the total work output of the turbine

A steam power plant for an automotive vehicle is proposed as shown. The boiler has a volume of 50 litres and initially contains 90% liquid and 10% vapor by volume at 100kPa. T

#### Develop an interactive computer program for ammonia

Develop an interactive computer program for ammonia using the Beattie-Bridgeman equation of state to produce the given results from responses to appropriate screen prompts:

#### What is the amplitude of the force transmitted to building

Consider a model of a building whose base moves as a result of an earthquake. The building can be modeled as a single-degree-of-freedom spring-mass system where the building m

#### Motor is used to raise

A 100-watt motor (60% efficient) is used to raise a 100-kilogram load 5 meters into the air. How long, in units of seconds, will it take the motor to accomplish this task?

#### What will be the weight of metal in the shell

It is desired to purchase a steel tank to store 20,000 US gallons of liquid propane; design pressure is 250 psig, and design stress is 20,000 psi. For steel, SG = 7.9. What wi

#### Find the force t that will cause the structure to fail

determine the force T that will cause the structure to fail. Assume the pulleys are frictionless with diameters that are small enough so that all cables between A and B are

#### Calculate the shaft torque due to each force

Figure P8.47 shows a helical gear having a 250 mm diameter that is mounted on the overhung end of a shaft, 50 mm from the nearest bearing. The load on the helical gear is Ft

#### Investigate the properties of the van der pol oscillator

Investigate the properties of the Van der Pol oscillator. In particular show that the oscillator shows limit cycle behaviour (that is, the oscillations tend to a form which
