Question

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.

Answer #1

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.

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 0.2 m3 piston-cylinder initially contains 400 K air. A heavy
frictionless piston maintains a pressure of 500 kPa abs. Then, a
weakness in the cylinder wall blows out and creates a hole. Air
escapes through the hole until the piston drops far enough to cover
the hole. At that point, the volume is half the initial volume.
During this process, 75 kJ of heat is transferred to the 100 kPa,
300 K surroundings. Using Cp = 1.005 kJ/kg-K and...

A 0.2 m3 piston/cylinder contains air at 400 K and
400 kPa and receives heat from a constant temperature heat source
at 1300 K. The piston expands at constant pressure to a
volume of 0.6 m3. Determine the change of availability
of the system.

steam is contained in a piston and cylinder assemble at a
pressure of 5 bar and temperature of 700 degrees celcius. At this
initial condition, the cylinder is restrained by stops since the
pressure is applied on piston only supprts a pressure of 3 bar in
the cylinder. The initial volume of system is 1m^3 and cooling is
applied to the system until final volume is 0.1m^3. Determine work
and heat transfer.

A quantity of air is contained in a cylinder provided
with a movable piston. Initially the
pressure of the air is 4 × 107 N/m2
, the volume is 1.5 m3
and the temperature is 400 K.
Assume air is an ideal gas. (a) What are the final volume and
temperature of the air if it is
allowed to expand isothermally from initial conditions until the
pressure is 3 × 107 N/m2
and
then is cooled at constant volume until...

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).
1. Calculate the pressure inside the cylinder in kPa.
2. The cylinder contains 0.1 kg of water vapor, and the
temperature of the water vapor is 150oC. Find the volume and
internal energy of water vapor...

1.A cylinder, with a piston pressing down with a constant
pressure, is filled with 1.90 moles of a gas (n1 ), and its volume
is 50.0 L (V1 ). If 0.400 mole of gas leak out, and the pressure
and temperature remain the same, what is the final volume of the
gas inside the cylinder?
A sample of gas in a cylinder as in the example in Part A has an
initial volume of 52.0 L , and you have...

A cylinder, with a piston pressing down with a constant
pressure, is filled with 2.00 moles of a gas (n1), and its
volume is 49.0 L (V1). If 0.500 mole of gas leak out, and
the pressure and temperature remain the same, what is the final
volume of the gas inside the cylinder?

A closed piston-cylinder system contains a 120
moles of neon, a monatomic ideal gas, at pressure
PA = 2.5 atm
and volume VA = 0.80
m3. It undergoes the following cyclic
process:
A -> B: I
There is isothermal expansion to volume double of the original.
B -> C:
Constant-volume process back to its original pressure .
C -> A:
Constant-pressure process back to its initial state
a) Draw a Pressure volume diagram for the cycle. You
don't need to...

A 10 cm -diameter cylinder contains argon gas at 10 atm pressure
and a temperature of 60 ∘C . A piston can slide in and out of the
cylinder. The cylinder's initial length is 19 cm . 2600 J of heat
are transferred to the gas, causing the gas to expand at constant
pressure. 1-What is the final temperature of the cylinder? 2-What
is the final length of the cylinder?
