1. Air enters a nozzle at 1800 R, 30 psia and 90 ft/s and exits the nozzle at 1500 R, 13 psia.
Assume no heat loss.
a. What is the exit velocity of the nozzle?
b. What type of nozzle is it?
Conversion Factor: 778 lb_f ft/BTU = g_c
C_p(air-std) = 0.24 BTU/lb_m R)
Air enters a diffuser at Pi=14.7 psia, Ti=540 R, at vi=600 ft/s. Ai =0.2 in^2, Ae=1.75 in^2,
ve=60 ft/s. Determine Pe, Te.
Air flows into a turbojet at vi=60 ft/s, Ti=480 R, m=10 lb_m/s and flows out at ve=1500 ft/s,
Te=1440 R, pe=11psia.
Air flows into an engine Ti=1000 K, pi=200kPa, vi=40 m/s and exits at ve=500 m/s, pe=90
kPa. What is the exit temperature with no losses?
Front of engine acts as diffuser, vi=900 km/hr, Ti=-5 C, pi = 50 kPa, bringing it to 80 m/s
relative to the engine before entering the fan. If the flow area is reduced to 80% of the inlet
area, find T, p at the fan inlet.
In an aircraft engine at takeoff, combustion products expand adiabatically in the exhaust
nozzle. Pi = 0.18 MPa, Ti= 1200 K. Cp = 0.959+1.16e-4 T + 3.65e-8 T^2 kJ/kg K. M=30 g/mol.
Assume the incoming kinetic energy is much smaller than the outgoing. Show how v and p
depend on T for T=900, 1000, 1100 K. Determine also the speed of sound at each T and the
required nozzle types.
