Which one of the following statements is correct?
In reciprocating compressors, one should aim at compressing the air
Roots blower is an example of:
Assertion (A): A reciprocating air compressor at sea level would deliver a greater mass of air than a compressor on a mountain.
Reason (R): The compressor ratings are given for “free air”.
Assertion (A): In multi-stage compressors, the polytropic efficiency is always greater than the isentropic efficiency.
Reason(R): Higher the pressure ration, the greater is the polytropic efficiency.
