A reftigeration system has air leaving refrigerated space at 7°C and 1 bar and subsequently air is compressed isentropicaily to 5 bar. After being compressed air is cooled up to 27°C at this pressure and then expanded isentropically up to I bar and discharged into refrigerated space. Determine COP of system.
