Question: an adiabatic turbine but not isentropic has steam enter at...

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?What is the maximum physically possible power the turbine could supply in horsepower (hp) to three significant digits
