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?
