Question

Steam enters a steady-flow adiabatic nozzle with a low inlet velocity as a saturated vapor at 6 MPa and expands to 12 atm. Under the conditions that the exit velocity is to be the maximum possible value, sketch the T-s diagram with respect to the saturation lines for this process. Determine the maximum exit velocity of the steam, in m/s.
