In a stage of an impulse turbine provided with single row wheel, the mean diameter of the blade ring is 800 mm and the speed of rotation is 3000 rpm. The steam issues from the nozzle with a velocity of 300 m/s and the nozzle angle is 20°. The rotor blades are equiangular and the blade friction factor is 0.86. What is the power develop in the blading when the axial thrust on the blades is 140 N.
