Questions:
Part (a)
A compressor installed at a wharf (for loading container ships) is able to provide 6 bar.g pressure into the pressure receiver. The compressor is moved to a site that is 5000 ft above sea level (atmospheric pressure 0.85 bar.a) in the mountains. What is the discharge revised discharge pressure (guage pressure) of the compressor?
Assume there is no change in temperature.
Part (b)
Is the assumption of change in temperature valid for calculating the discharge pressure of the compressor ?
Part (c)
The temperature at the wharf is 35°C and in the mountains is 19°C, what is the reduction in volumetic output from the compressor ?
