cycle. Steam enters the turbine at 1400 psi and 1000 °F. The condenser pressure is 2 psi. The net

power output of the cycle is 1×10 Btu/h. Cooling water experiences a temperature increase from

60°F to 76°F, with negligible pressure drop, as it passes through the condenser. Determine for

the cycle (i) the mass flow rate of steam, in lbm/h.

(ii) the rate of heat transfer, in Btu/h, to the working fluid passing through the steam generator.

(iii) the thermal efficiency, and (iv) the mass flow rate of cooling water, in lb/h.
