6. The overall efficiency of a gas turbine can be calculated from the formula
.....
where is the small stage efficiency and E =..., where r is the
expansion pressure ratio and gamma is the ratio of the specific heats. Given that the overall efficiency nf is 76%, r = 4.6 and that y = 1.333, calculate the value of the small stage efficiency nf.
7. Transform the formula
....
to make n the subject.
8. Rearrange the equation ..... to obtain a formula for q.
