What if we crossed a cargo ship with an African bee?

Would you have a B Arc?

What's an LP turbine rotor? And what's a core charge? ???



The more energy you take from the steam the more efficient the system. So after the High Pressure turbine is done with the steam it goes to the Low Pressure turbine for that last little bit.

And a core charge is the money you put up front when you buy a part and intend to return the old part so as to get a break on the price. If we hadn't returned the old turbine rotor the full price would have been charged to the USN. When the old rotor was delivered to the factory they charged the taxpayers $750,000.00 U$D.

If that doesn't clear it up for you feel free to ask more questions.

Thank you. Yes, that is very clear. I appreciate the explanation.
