With high pressure the air enter into combustion chamber then fuel is injected into air after complete mixture of air and fuel the charge is ignited. The gases expand with high pressure.The high pressure gases expands in turbine and it gives its high pressure energy to rotate the blades of turbine. That the mechanical engergy is produced.The exhaust gases are released into atmosphere or it can be reused by providing heat exchangers. The cycle repeats./ quora
