Question details

Air enters a compressor operating at steady state with a pressure of 14.5 lbf/in.2, a temperature of 80°F, and a volumetric flow rate of 20 ft3/s. Air exits the compressor at 50 lbf/in.2 Heat transfer from the compressor to its surroundings occurs at a rate of 20.5 Btu per lb of air flowing. If the compressor power input is 105 hp, determine the exit temperature, in °F.
