The specific speed of a centrifugal compressor is generally _________
(A) Higher than that of axial compressor
(B) Less than that of reciprocating compressor
(C) Independant of the type of compressor, but depends only on the size of the compressor
(D) More than the specific speed of the reciprocating compressor but less than that of the axial compressor
The specific speed of centrifugal compressor is generally more than the specific speed of the reciprocating compressor but less than the axial compressor.
Specific speed of axial compressor > Specific speed of centrifugal compressor > Specific speed of reciprocating compressor
