Verified questions
ENGINEERING
Consider a 25-mm diameter and 15-m long smooth tube that is maintained at a constant surface temperature. Fluids enter the tube at $50^\circ C$ with a mass flow rate of 0.01 kg/s. Determine the tube surface temperatures necessary to heat water, engine oil, and liquid mercury to the desired outlet temperature of $150^\circ C.$
ENGINEERING
Find the trigonometric polynomial f(x) of the form for which the square error with respect to the given f(x) on the interval -πx<π is minimum. Compute the minimum value for N=1, 2,..., 5 (or also for larger values if you have a CAS).
ENGINEERING
A turbojet aircraft flies with a velocity of 1100 km/h at an altitude where the air temperature and pressure are $-35^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ and 40 kPa. Air leaves the diffuser at 50 kPa with a velocity of 15 m/s, and combustion gases enter the turbine at 450 kPa and $950^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$. The turbine produces 800 kW of power, all of which is used to drive the compressor. Assuming an isentropic efficiency of 83 percent for the compressor, turbine, and nozzle, and using variable specific heats, determine (a) the pressure of combustion gases at the turbine exit, (b) the mass flow rate of air through the compressor, (c) the velocity of the gases at the nozzle exit, and (d) the propulsive power and the propulsive efficiency for this engine.
ENGINEERING
a. With what initial speed must you throw a ball vertically for it to reach a height of 20 ft? The ball weighs 1 lb. How does your answer change if the ball weighs 2 lb? b. Suppose you want to throw a steel bar vertically to a height of 20 ft. The bar weighs 2 lb. How much initial speed must the bar have to reach this height? Discuss how the length of the bar affects your answer.
