8-101 Air is expanded in an adiabatic nozzle by a polytropic process. The temperature and velocity at the
exit are to be determined.
Assumptions 1 This is a steady-flow process since there is no change with time. 2 There is no heat transfer
or shaft work associated with the process. 3 Air is an ideal gas with constant specific heats.
Properties The properties of air at room temperature are cp = 1.005 kJ/kg·K and k = 1.4 (Table A-2a).

There is only one inlet and one exit, and thus m 1 m 2 m . We take nozzle as the system, which is a
control volume since mass crosses the boundary. The energy balance for this steady-flow system can be
