###### Question details

An *adiabatic turbine (but not isentropic)* has steam
enter at a pressure of 200 psia, a temperature of 500 F and a
velocity of 40 ft/s. The steam leaves at 20 psia and a temperature
of 300 F and a velocity of 20 ft/s. The turbine is providing 100
horsepower of work. Answer the questions below, but be careful to
answer the correct question.

What is the **actual** **mass flow in lbm/s
through this turbine** to three significant
digits?W**hat is the maximum physically possible power the
turbine could supply in horsepower (hp)** to three
significant digits
