### An air refrigerator of 10 ton capacity operates in Bell coleman  cycle between pressure limits of 1bar and 4 bar. Air at inlet of compressor is at 1 bar and 253K. Air at exit of cooler is at 313 K. After air is cooled to 290K at constant pressure in cooler, it is allowed to expand isentropically to 1 bar in expansion cylinder. Cold air is then sent to cold chamber to extract heat (Refrigeration effect). Determine COP of refrigerator.
