Question:-
In a Brayton cycle, what is the value of optimum pressure ratio for maximum net work done between temperatures T1 and T3, where T3 is the maximum temperature and T1 is the minimum temperature?
Option (A)
Option (B)
Option(C)
Option(D)
Correct Option:
(C)
Question Solution:
rp = (T3/T1)g/2(g-1); (d Wnet/drp) = 0
The differentiation of Wnet will respect to pressure ratio yield the optimum pressure ratio for maximum net work done.
