07
as the product of boiler, turbine, generator and cycle
efficiencies.

OR

Q.3 (a) List different components use in jet propulsion
03
engine in sequence.

04
between open system, closed system and an isolated

system.

(c) With neat sketch explains Otto Cycle in detail also derive
07
expression for efficiency.
Q.5 (a) Prove that CP ? CV = R.
03

(b) An engine working on the Otto cycle is supplied with
04

supplied is 2100 kJ/kg. Calculate the cycle
efficiency.

(c) With neat sketch explain Brayton Cycle in detail.
07

OR
Q.5 (a) Write limitation of the first law of thermodynamics.
03
(b) With neat sketch show comparison Carnot and Rankine
04
cycle.
(c) A Carnot engine absorbs 200 J of heat from a
07
reservoir at the temperature of the normal boiling
point of water and rejects heat to reservoir at the
temperature of the triple point of water. Find the heat
rejected, the work done by the engine and the thermal
efficiency.
