I'm working on a research paper on the history of the jet engine and need to get some basic numbers for a jet engine. My focus is on Frank Whittle and the Gloster 28 and the main equation I've been using is F=(mdot*V)exit - (mdot*V)initial. If anyone knows what the values would be for the Gloster and Whittle's W1 engine or something similar that would be ideal. Otherwise, if someone could give me these numbers for a somewhat basic jet engine today.
Other values that I'm trying to get actual numbers for are:
1) Increase in pressure and temperature of the air (from outside air temp. & atmospheric pressure) as it goes through the inlet and compressor and gets to the burner where its compressed and heated.
(Also, this is more of a history paper than a science paper, but the professors would like to have accurate and real numbers for a few of the basic equations that innovator (Whittle) would have used, so I don't need complex calculus or anything of that nature, just simple numbers to plug into the equations above.)
