Consider an air-standard Brayton cycle with adiabatic compressor and turbine, and a regenerator, as shown in the figure. Air enters the compressor at 100 kPa and 300 K and exits the compressor at 600 kPa and 550 K. The air exits the combustion chamber at 1250 K and exits the adiabatic turbine at 100 kPa and 800 K. The exhaust air from the turbine is used to preheat the air in the regenerator. The exhaust air exits the regenerator (state 6) at 600 K. There is no pressure drop across the regenerator and the combustion chamber. Also, there is no heat loss from the regenerator to the surroundings. The ratio of specific heats at constant pressure and volume is $c_p/c_v$= 1.4. The thermal efficiency of the cycle is ________% (answer in integer).

Water having a density of $$1000\,\,kg/{m^3},$$ issues from a Nozzle with a velocity of $$10$$ $$m/s$$ and the jet strikes a bucket mounted on a Pelton wheel. The wheel rotates at $$10$$ $$rad/s$$. The mean diameter of the wheel is $$1$$ $$m.$$ The jet is split into two equal streams by the bucket; such each stream is deflected by $${120^ \circ }$$, as shown in the figure. Friction in the bucket may be neglected. Magnitude of the torque exerted by the water on the wheel, per unit mass flow rate of the incoming jet, is
A
$$0\,\,\left( {N - m} \right)/\left( {kg/s} \right)$$
B
$$1.25\,\,\left( {N - m} \right)/\left( {kg/s} \right)$$
