Steam Cycles: Two Stage Turbine and Cycle Efficiency

Steam is supplied to a two-stage turbine at 40 bar and 350°C. It expands in the first turbine until it is dry saturated, then it is reheated to 350°C and expanded through the second-stage turbine. The condenser pressure is 0.035 bar. Calculate the work output and the heat supplied per kg steam for the plant assuming ideal processes. Calculate also the cycle efficiency.
