The 60-hour Rule
- Assumption #1: 60 hrs /week spent on Studying; work & commute
- Assumption #2: Students spend 2 hours of studying for every 1 hour in class
The 60-hour Rule Example:
EXAMPLE:
Work & commute is 15 hoursThus studying time: 60 -15= 45 hoursThus max. no. of courses: 45/3=15 credit-hours

ENGINEERING
Combustion gases enter a gas turbine at $627^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ and 1.2 MPa at a rate of 2.5 kg/s and leave at $527^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ and 500 kPa. It is estimated that heat is lost from the turbine at a rate of 20 kW. Using air properties for the combustion gases and assuming the surroundings to be at $25^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ and 100 kPa, determine (a) the actual and reversible power outputs of the turbine. (b) the exergy destroyed within the turbine, and (c) the second-law efficiency of the turbine.
