Gas mixturek 1.35100 kPa, 35°C


A mixture of ideal gases has a specific heat ratio of k = 1.35 and an apparent molecular weight of M = 44 kg/kmol. Determine the work, in kJ/kg, required to compress this mixture isentropically in a closed system from 100 kPa and 35°C to 700 kPa. The universal gas constant is Ru = 8.314 kJ/kmol·K.






The work required to compress this mixture is  _______kJ/kg.
