is equation T2=T1*(p2/p2)^((k-1/k)) correct to calculate air temperatute during compression from 1bar to 2bar in a radial compressor?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and equation for temperature drop throug intercoller T3=T2-ICefficiency*(T2-ambient_air_temp). Is this equation really so simple, what about air density when we are at high altitudes we have less dense air to cool the IC.

below is the link to java turbo calc, where aplication calculates the temperature after the compresion and after the IC (intercoller) - they also use compressor efficiency data in the calculation? What the compressor efficiency even is?
