Answer #1

2 kg of steam initially at 2.00 MPa and 225?C expands in a
piston-cylinder assembly until the final pressure is 0.10 MPa.
During the process, the temperature of steam is kept constant by
keeping it in a constant temperature atmosphere at 225?C. a. What
is the maximum amount of work that can be produced? What is the
entropy change of steam? What is the entropy change of the
universe? b. Suppose that the actual work done is 80% of the...

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 piston-cylinder device initially contains 75 g of saturated
water vapor at 340 kPa . A resistance heater is operated within the
cylinder with a current of 0.6 A from a 300 V source until the

saturated liquid water?

Three kilograms (3.0 kg) of saturated steam at 162oC is held in
a closed piston-cylinder apparatus with a weighted piston that
exerts a constant force on the steam. The piston-cylinder apparatus
loses energy to the surroundings such that at a certain point 50%
of the steam has condensed to a saturated liquid inside the
cylinder (NOTE: the vapor and liquid are still saturated at the new
condition).
a. For the process described above, determine the heat exchange

One kg of water in a piston-cylinder assembly
undergoes two processes in series from an initial state where p1 =
0.8 MPa, T1 = 500°C:
Process 1-2: Constant-pressure compression until the
volume is half of
the initial volume.
Process 2-3: Constant-volume cooling until the
pressure drops to 400 kPa.
Sketch the two processes in series on a p-v and T-v
diagram. Determine the work and heat transfer for both
processes.
