# Determining the Exit Temperature and Power Input of Air through a Compressor

Not what you're looking for?

Air at 150Pa and 310K enters a compressor of inlet diameter 2cm. The Compressor raises the pressure to 3.5 times the inlet pressure and has an outlet diameter of 5cm. Determine the exit temperature and power input required, if the mass flow rate of air is 100kg/hr.

Final Temp T2

We know that

T1 / T2 = (P2/P1)^(K-1)/K

Where k = 1.4 for air as adiabatic process.

T2= (310)/ (3.5P1/P1)^(1.4-1)/1.4
