# In a nozzle steam expands from 12 bar and 300°C to 6 bar with flow rate of 5 kg/s. Determine throat and exit area if exit velocity is 500 m/s and velocity at inlet to nozzle is negligible. Also find coefficient of velocity at exit. Coefficient of velocity is the ratio of actual velocity of fluid at nozzle exit to the velocity at exit considering isentropic flow through nozzle.
