Equation of polytropic process as dS=f(n)

  1. Feb 1, 2013 #1

    basicaly what I have is a program that calculates states of the gas in Carnot cycle (Jet engine). Now my intention is to plot it in T-S diagram. To do that, knowing the states after an each component of engine, I need to evaluate a temperature as a function of Enthropy change knowing only the states at the begining and end of the polytropic process. Is there any way to do this?.

    Thank you

    ΔS=qrev/T , a reversible process....

    And in polytropic process , do you know formula for work done ? After that it will be quite obvious.
