RE: Specific Impulse?

If you are familiar with jet engines it might be helpful to note that specific impulse (Isp) is the reciprocal of specific fuel consumption (SFC). Where SFC is how much fuel you burn to produce a given thrust, Isp is how much thrust you get for a given amount of fuel burned. This <B>extremely</B> pr...

RE: What Engines Do The DL 757-200's Use?

My understanding is that the PW2000 does not have a variable bleed system for operability. There is only a valve that opens or closes to control operating margin. Is this true?

If it is true, is the opening of this valve the loud WHOOSH sound I hear after T/R depolyment on Delta's 757s?

RE: Exhaust Gas Speed At Start-up

Don't know the answer to this question but your units are messed up. Cubic feet per minute is a unit of volumetric flow rate not speed. Furthermore, flow rate in jet engines is book-kept with weight flow rate (perhaps mass flow rate for our friends across the pond) if that's what you are looking for.
