In a simple Brayton cycle, the pressure ratio is $8$ and temperatures at the entrance of compressor and turbine are $300$ $K$ and $1400$ $K$, respectively. Both compressor and gas turbine have isentropic efficiencies equal to $0.8$. For the gas, assume a constant value of $c_p$ (specific heat at constant pressure) equal to $1$ $kJ$/$kgK$ and ratio of specific heats as $1.4$. Neglect changes in kinetic and potential energies.

The thermal efficiency of the cycle in percentage (%) is

  1. $24.8$
  2. $38.6$
  3. $44.8$
  4. $53.1$

An ideal gas undergoes a process from state $1 \: (T_1 = 300\: K, \: p_1 = 100 \: kPa)$ to state $2 \: (T_2 = 600 \; K, \: p_2 = 500 \: kPa)$. The specific heats of the ideal gas are: $C_p = 1 \: kJ/kg-K$ and $C_v = 0.7 \: kJ/kg-K$. The change in specific entropy of the ideal gas from state $1$ to state $2$ (in $kJ/kg-K$) is ______ (correct to two decimal places).
