Question

Steam enters a horizontal turbine at 350 lbf/in ^{2} absolute,

580 ° C, and 12 ft/s and is discharged at 110 ft/s and 25 ° C

saturated conditions. The mass fl ow is 2.5 lbm/s, and the

heat losses are 7 Btu/lb of steam. If head losses are negligible,

how much horsepower does the turbine develop?
