Question

This question relates to thermodynamics.

in an adiabatic piston cylinder arrangement:

if state 1 pressure is known and work is done by the piston to compress a water mixture can the temperature at state 2 be read off the steam tables by using the value of internal energy at state 1 and adding the work to it? If so does this then become the enthalphy i.e. internal energy + work = enthalphy.

And then using this enthaphy and the given pressure at state 2 can the temperature now be read from the steam table using enthalpy?

Answer #1

Steam is confined in a piston cylinder arrangement with an
initial volume of 0.625 cubic meters, an initial temperature of 150
degrees C, and an initial pressure of 16 pounds per square inch.
Then the piston is slowly moved so that the steam's volume is
decreased by 0.075 cubic meters in an isothermal process.
Calculate:
a. the final pressure
b. the work done by the steam
c. the change in the steam's internal energy
d. the change in entropy of...

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
(state 2), during which the piston moves freely in the cylinder. If
the change of state is brought about by heating the water as it
undergoes an internally reversible process at constant pressure and
temperature, determine (a) heat transfer using first law of
thermodynamics in kJ/kg and (b) heat transfer using second law of
thermodynamics...

A cylinder of monatomic ideal gas is sealed in a cylinder by a
piston. Initially, the gas occupies a volume of 3.00 L and the
pressure is initially 105 kPa. The cylinder is placed in an oven
that maintains the temperature at a constant value. 65.0 J of work
is then done on the piston, compressing the gas (in other words,
the gas does −65.0 J of work). The work is done very slowly so that
the gas maintains a...

Atmospheric pressure is 100 kPa in a system of cylinders and pistons.The mass of the piston is 4 kg and the area of the piston is 4.0 cm2. The following process takes place by external heat transfer. (Gravity acceleration is 10 m / s2).

Steam undergoes an isentropic compression in an insulated
piston–cylinder assembly from an initial state where T1 = 120°C, p1
= 1 bar to a final state where the pressure p2 = 20 bar. Determine
the final temperature, in °C, and the work, in kJ per kg of steam.
The final temperature equals 513.87°C.

Oxygen gas is contained in a piston cylinder assembly at an
initial pressure of 1000 kPa and expands from 0.2 m3 to 1.0 m3 by a
process where PV = constant. The gas has an internal energy change
of -200 kJ. Calculate the work (kJ) and the heat transfer (kJ) done
during the process.

A mixture of gaseous reactants is put into a cylinder, where a
chemical reaction turns then into gaseaous products. the cylinder
has a piston that moves in or out, as necessary, to keep a constant
pressure on the mixture of 1 atm. the cylinder is also submerged in
a large insulated water bath.
From previous experiments, this chemical reaction is known to
release 173.kJ of energy.
the temperature of the water bath is monitored, and it is
determined from this...

In a cylinder/piston arrangement, air is compressed in a
reversible polytropic process to a final state of 800 kPa, 500 K.
Initially air is at 110 kPa and 25oC. During the
compression process heat transfer takes place with the ambient
maintained at 25oC. Assume air as an ideal gas (R =0.287
kJ/kg) and has constant specific heats of Cp = 1.004
kJ/kgK and Cv = 0.717 kJ/kgK. If the mass of air in the
cylinder is 0.1286 kg, determine
a)...

A 19.0-L volume of an ideal gas in a cylinder with a piston is
at a pressure of 2.8 atm. Enough weight is suddenly removed from
the piston to lower the external pressure to 1.4 atm. The gas then
expands at constant temperature until its pressure is 1.4 atm.

state.
