Question

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.

Answer #1

The piston-cylinder system is filled with a steam of 2.5m3 at 10
barometric pressure and 450oC. When the condensation is about to
start by cooling at a constant pressure.

A piston-cylinder device contains 0.54 kg of steam at 300
degrees C and 3 MPa. Steam is cooled at constant pressure until
one-half of the mass condenses. (A) Find the final temperature (B)
Determine the volume change

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
with the surroundings....

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.

Think of the piston-cylinder system. Initially, it is filled
with pressure of 8 atmosphere, water of 0.1 m3 and steam of 0.9 m3.
The piston moved freely and heat was transferred to expand,
resulting in a final temperature of 350oC.

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...

Steam is confined in a piston cylinder arrangement with an
initial volume of 0.625 cubic meters, an initial temperature of 150

A piston-cylinder device with a set of stops initially contains
0.35 kg of steam at 1.0 MPa and 900 degrees C. The location of the
stops corresponds to 44 percent of the initial volume. Now the

the final state is (A) 1.0 MPa and 600 degrees C and W=. kJ (B) 500
kPa. W=. kJ (C) Also determine the temperature at the final state

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

then is cooled at constant volume until...

Steam, initially at 700 lbf/in.2, 550°F undergoes a
polytropic process in a piston–cylinder assembly to a final
