Isentropic Compression using Newton's Method

by Michael Bernard


Submitted : Spring 2009

In this project, we try to compute the outlet temperature from a compressor given the inlet temperature and the inlet and outlet pressures. We use the entropy equation and sets it equal to zero so that it relates these given values, and the universal gas constant in order to calculate the outlet temperature of the gas. We use an iterative technique.
