9-102 A modified Brayton cycle with air as the working fluid operates at a specified pressure ratio. The T-s diagram is to be
sketched and the temperature and pressure at the exit of the high-pressure turbine and the mass flow rate of air are to be
determined.
Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist. 2 The air-standard assumptions are applicable. 3 Kinetic and potential
energy changes are negligible. 4 Air is an ideal gas with constant specific heats.
Properties The properties of air are given as cv = 0.718 kJ/kg·K, cp = 1.005 kJ/kg·K, R = 0.287 kJ/kg·K, k = 1.4.
