#### In a gas turbine unit, the gases flow through the turbine is 15 kg/s and the power developed by the turbine is 12000 kW. The enthalpies of gases at the inlet and outlet are 1260 kJ/kg and 400 kJ/kg respectively and the velocity of gases al the inlet and outlet are 50 m/s and 110 m/s respectively. Calculate : (i) The rate at which heat is rejected to the turbine, and (ii) The area of the inlet pipe given that the specific volume of the gases at the inlet is 0.45 m^{3}/kg.
