Question

PROBLEM 1 Given the following properties and processes for a steam heat engine cycle with Mdot_cycle=12 kg/s 1. Show state points and process lines on a property diagram. 2. Calculate the thermal efficiency of the cycle. 3. Calculate the maximum thermal efficiency of the cycle 4. Show the state points and process lines for the maximum efficiency (ideal) cycle on your property diagram. 5. Is the cycle possible or impossible? Why?
