A steam turbine receives steam at 1.5MPa and 220oC, and exhausts at 50kPa, 0.75 dry. Neglecting heat losses and changes in kinetic and potential energy, estimate the work output per kg steam.

If when allowance is made for friction, radiation and leakages losses, the actual work of that estimated in (a), calculate the power output of the turbine when consuming 600kg of steam per minute.
