Steam Turbine:

INTRODUCTION:  Steam turbine is chief mover in which rotary motion can be obtained by a gradual change of momentum of steam. The force exerted on blade is due to rate of change of momentum of steam. The curved blades change direction of steam. The pressure of steam rotates vanes. The turbine blades are curved in such a manner that the steam directed upon them enters without any shock.
