6.82 geothermal power plant uses geothermal water extracted at150° C at rate of 210 kg/s as the heat source and produces 8000 kw of net power. The geothermal water leaves the plant at 90C. If the environment temperature is 25C, determine (a)the actual thermal efficiency, (b)the maximum possible thermal efficiency, and. (c)the actual rate of heat rejection from this power plant.
