of 1200 kPa. Water enters the boiler at 20°C (Tσ), and the exhaust gases are cooled to

within 10°C of the steam temperature. The heat capacity of the exhaust gases is CP /R =

3.34 + 1.12 × 10−3 T/K. The steam flows into an adiabatic turbine and exhausts at a

pressure of 25 kPa. If the turbine efficiency η is 72%,
