Consider  a  two  stage  reciprocating  air  compressor  with  a  perfect  intercooler operating at the best intermediate  pressure. Air enters the low-pressure  cylinder at 1 bar, 27°C and leaves the high-pressure cylinder  at 9 bar. Assume the index of  compression  and  expansion  in  each  stage  is  1.4,  and  that  for  air  R  =  286.7 J/kg K, the work done per kg air in the high pressure cylinder is

1.  111 kJ

2.  222 kJ

3.  37 kJ

4.  74 kJ
