The temperature of steam at the inlets of both turbines is 500C, and the enthalpy of steam is 3185 KJ/kg at the exit of the high-pressure turbine, and 2247 KJ/kg at the exit of the low-pressure turbine. Disregarding the pump work, the cycle efficiency is

a.) 32 percent b.) 29 percent c.) 49 percent d.) 41 percent

2. Relevent Equations

Nrankine = Wnet / Qin = (Qin - Qout)/Qin

s2 = sf@pressure + x(sfg@pressure)

h2 = hf@pressure + x(hfg@pressure)

3. The attempt at a solution

Not really sure where to start. I did one before this that is just a simple Rankine cycle without the reheat. The reheating is what throws me off. Any help would be appreciated
