Question

Problem 17-2: Determine the heat transfer required to cause a tank initially pressurized with air to discharge isenthalpically. The initial state inside the tank is 1500 psia, 100 F, 10 lbm. The final state is 14.7 psia and .098 lbm. Assume ideal gas behavior.

Answer #2

Isenthalpic process is the one in which the enthalpy entropy of the system remains constant. The process in which there will be sudden change in the pressure but there is no heat transfer and work done would be zero. One example of isenthalpic process is throtelling process in which the fluid flowing through a paasege encounters a suddenrestriction could be a sudden and large restriction like valve. The result of restriction is sudden drop in the pressure of the fluid as it is restricted to flow through the restriction. So there will be no heat transfer not work done.

A rigid copper tank, initially containing 1 m3 of air at 295 K,
4 bar, is connected by a valve to a large supply line carrying air
at 295 K, 15 bar. The valve is opened only as long as required to
fill the tank with air to a pressure of 15 bar. Finally, the air in
the tank is at 310 K. The copper tank, which has a mass of 20 kg,
is at the same temperature as the...

1. A tank of air contains 100 ft^3. The pressure and temperature
are 1000 F and 100 psia. The air
is cooled to 100 F.
a. Find the mass of the air
b. Find the initial energy of the tank (Btu)
c. Find the final energy of the tank (Btu)
d. Compute the heat (Btu)
2. Water is contained inside a constant pressure piston cylinder
device. The initial temperature
and quality of the water are x=0 and T=300 F. The...

A piston cylinder contains 2 lbm of air and operates at a
constant pressure of 400 psia. The initial volume is 1 ft.3 and the
initial temperature is 100°F. The final volume is 4 ft.3 and the
final temperature is 1780°F. Determine the work and its direction
(in or out) and the heat transfer and its direction, in
Btu/lbm.

A Carbon dioxide fire extinguisher initially contains 5.5lbm of
CO2 gas. In “real life” the CO2 would not be
all gas, but for this problem assume that it is. The CO2
gas has an initial pressure of 860psia and initial temperature of
+72oF. Immediately after putting out a fire, it has a
final pressure of 100psia and a final temperature of
-30oF. Assume ideal gas law behavior.
a) Show that the specific gas constant for CO2 gas is
approximately R=1131ft∙lbf/(slug∙R)....
