The area reduction in the converging nozzle needed to generate this increase in steam velocity is calculated using Eq (4.7) for steady-state flow:
The specific volume ratio is obtained from the ideal gas law ve Te p; 423 1.0
Other applications of the First and Second laws to flow devices are found in Problems Nos. 4.7, 4.8, and 4.13.
