Homework Help: Find the max velocity of the steam in a steady-flow adiabatic nozzle

  1. Mar 13, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    3. The attempt at a solution
    According to the solution, the max velocity is when the entropy of state 1 is equal to the entropy at state 2. Why is this the case?

    My friend says it is because the system is isentropic but I am still very confused. Is the system actually isentropic first of all?
