Answer #1

An ideal gas, contained in a piston-cylinder device, undergoes a
polytropic exponent n=k, the ratio of specific heats. Show that
this process is adiabatic

5 kg of air in a piston cylinder assembly undergoes a Carnot

?1=1200kPa to ?2=900kPa, respectively. Assume the air behaves as an
ideal gas with constant specific heats.

Water, initially (state 1) a saturated liquid at
1100C, is contained in a piston-cylinder assembly. The
water undergoes a process to the corresponding saturated vapor
