Homework Statement



Determine the camber angle of a rotor blade for an axial flow turbomachine.

Homework Equations



Beta1 - Beta2 = Camber angle (theta)

The Attempt at a Solution

If the camber angle is equal to beta1 minus beta2 then it should be zero degrees unless minus angle(s) are used?

Have I put the various angles in their proper positions in the diagram?

Thank you for any help.

I think perhaps I have not explained my problem adequately.

Taking the circular camber line (representing the centre of a turbomachinery blade in profile), have I drawn the inlet and exit blade angles properly; are they both 45 degrees (for a circular curve) and is the camber angle, ion this case, 90 degrees?
