**Problem 6.2 - Turbine Adiabatic Efficiency**

Consider the adiabatic steam turbine shown below.

- a. Carefully plot the turbine process on the h-s diagram and indicate the turbine work done on the plot.
- b. Using steam tables determine the specific work output of the turbine [1015 kJ/kg].
- c. Using steam tables determine the entropy generated by this process. Assume that the surroundings temperatue is at 27°C. [0.01 kJ/kg.K]
- d. Discuss these results and determine if this is a feasible turbine design.

*Derive* all equations
used starting from the basic energy equation and the equation
for entropy generated in a flow system.
