The pressure guage on the steam condenser for a turbine indicates 26.2 in. Hg of vacuum. The barometer reading is 30.4 in. What the absolute pressure in the condenser in psia?

  1. paru

    is the calculation correct?

    vaccun = 26.2inhg
    Barometer=30.4 inhg
    Converting inhg to Psia

    Absolute pressure = 12.87+14.9
    =27.77psia
