A steam turbine receives superheated steam at 1.4 MPa absolute pressure and 400Â°C, which corresponds to a specific enthalpy of 3121 kJ/kg. The steam leaves the turbine at 101 kPa absolute pressure and 100Â°C for which the specific enthalpy is 2676 kJ/kg. The steam enters the turbine at 25 m/s and exits at 60 m/s, and the mass flow rate through the turbine is 0.5 kg/s. The elevation difference between the entrance and exit is negligible. If the power output of the turbine is 220 kW, calculate the heat transfer rate in units of kW.
