A boiler furnace releases 10000.000kJ of heat for each kg of fuel burned and produces dry saturated steam at 10000.000kPa from feed water at 190.000 degrees Celsius. How many kg of steam will be produced for each kg of fuel burned if the boiler had an efficiency of 69%. ANS = ...

A heavy flywheel rotating on its central axis is slowing down because of friction on its bearings. At the end of the first minute of slowing, its rotational speed is 0.90 of its intial rotational speed of 250 rev/min. Assuming a constant rotational acceleration, find its ...

I need help solving the problem below. Please respond. At the local swimming hole, a favorite trick is to run horizontally off a cliff that is 8.9 m above the water. One diver runs off the edge of the cliff, tucks into a "ball," and rotates on the way down with an average ...
