QUESTION: 9

Phenomenon of choking in compressor means

Solution:

Phenomenon of choking in compressor means fixed mass flow rate regardless of pressure ratio.

QUESTION: 10

Assertion (A ): T he isothermal efficiency of a reciprocating compressor becomes 100% if perfect cooling of the fluid during compression is attained.

Reason (R): Wor k do ne in a reciprocating compressor is less if the process of compression is isothermal rather than polytropic.
