Homework Help: Irreversible Carnot Vapor Power Cycle

  1. Mar 24, 2013 #1
    Two questions:
    1. What does the T-s diagram look like for the irreversible cycle?
    2. Do the isentropic efficiency equations that you apply to turbines and compressors (especially in the Rankine cycle) apply to the theoretical "turbines" and "pumps" in the Carnot cycle?
