A gas turbine with air as the working fluid has an isentropic efficiency of $0.70$ when operating at a pressure ratio of $3$. Now, the pressure ratio of the turbine is increased to $5$, while maintaining the same inlet conditions. Assume air as a perfect gas ... both the cases, the isentropic efficiency of the turbine at the pressure ratio of $5$ is ___________ (round off to two decimal places)

A calorically perfect gas (specific heat at constant pressure $1000 \: J/kg .K$) enters and leaves a gas turbine with the same velocity. The temperatures of the gas at turbine entry and exit are $1100 \: K $and $400 \: K$, respectively. The power produced is $4.6\: MW$ and heat ... the turbine casing. The mass flow rate of the gas (in $kg/s$) through the turbine is $6.14$ $7.00$ $7.50$ $8.00$
