1. Use the Bernoulli equation and show that, for a wind

turbine, the wind velocity is the arithmetic average of the velocity upstream

and downstream of the propeller.

2. Wind is approaching a wind turbine at 27 mph, as shown in

Figure VIc.5.3. The wake wind has a velocity of 15 mph. Find a) the wind

velocity at the blade and b) the corresponding power extracted by the turbine.
