Question details

2. (10 pts) A centrifugal compressor supplies 1 m/s of air at 298 K and 101.3 kN/m2 to a process unit at 500 kN/m2. If isentropic compression is assumed what would be the discharge temperature? What is the work requirement for the compressor in J/g? What is the power requirement in kW? If the compression were isothermal, what would have been the power requirement? Compare and comment on the difference. Assume ideal gas and 7-1.4. MWair -29 g/gmole.
