In a Carnot cycle the lowest pressure and temperature are equal to 1 bar and 20°C and isothermal compression pressure is 4 bar. Pressure after isentropic compression is 10 bar and after isothermal heat addition process is 5 bar. Calculate (a) the highest temperature in the cycle, (b) the change in entropy during isothermal expansion, (c) heat addition to the cycle, (d) heat rejected by the cycle,(e) power developed with 150 cycles/min, (f) thermal efficiency of the cycle, and (g) mean effective pressure. Assume \gamma = 1.4.
