## Homework Statement

A converging nozzle is used to accelerate a flow of air from 50m/s at the inlet to 150m/s at the exit. The air temperature is 25°C at the inlet. Assuming heat transfer to the air is negligible, use the steady flow energy equation to calculate the temperature at the exit.

## Homework Equations

Steady flow energy equation:

*h*

_{1}+0.5V_{1}^{2}+gZ_{1}=h_{2}+0.5V_{2}^{2}+gZ_{2}## The Attempt at a Solution

I've revised control volume analysis and steady flow processes but I'm not getting anywhere with this. I assume it will be a very simple calculation as all the other 'easy' revision questions have taken me about a minute or two.

The correct answer is 15.1°C
