Steam at 10 MPa, 600 °C, enters the first stage of an ideal Rankine cycle with reheat.

The steam leaving the reheat section of the steam generator is at 500 °C, and the condenser pressure is 6 kPa.

If the quality at the exit of the second stage turbine is 90%, determine the cycle thermal efficiency.
