Question

Two moles of nitrogen are initially at 10 bar and 600 K (state 1) in a horizontal piston/cylinder device. They are expanded adiabatically to 1 bar (state 2). They are then heated at constant volume to 600 K (state 3). Finally, they are isothermally returned to state 1. Assume that N 2 is an ideal gas with a constant heat capacity as given on the back flap of the book. Neglect the heat capacity of the piston/cylinder device. Suppose that heat can be supplied or rejected as illustrated below. Assume each step of the process is reversible. Calculate the net work done overall.

Answer #1

An insulated cylinder is filled with nitrogen gas at 25ºC and
1.00 bar. The nitrogen is then compressed adiabatically with a
constant pressure of 5.00 bar until equilibrium is reached. i. What
is the final temperature of the nitrogen if it is treated as an
ideal gas with molar heat capacity CP = 7/2 R ?
ii. Calculate ΔH (in kJ mol-1 ) and ΔS (in J mol-1 K-1 ) for the
compression. (Hint: Because the enthalpy is a state...

P4.6. Steam at 400°C and 10 bar is left in an insulated 10 m^3
cylinder. The cylinder has a small leak, however. Compute the
conditions of the steam after the pressure has dropped to 1 bar.
What is the change in the specific entropy of the steam in the
cylinder? Is this a reversible process? The mass of the cylinder is
600 kg, and its heat capacity is 0.1 cal/g-K. Solve the problem
with and without considering the heat capacity...

1-kg water in a frictionless piston-cylinder device is initially
at 250°C and 300 kPa (state
1). A total of 700 kJ of work is done ON the water
in order to isothermally reduce its volume to
1/20 of its initial volume (state 2). Determine the magnitude and
direction of the heat transfer
involved in this process.
Answer: -1147 kJ.

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...

1 kg of water in a piston cylinder arrangement is initially in a
saturated liquid state at 1 bar. It undergoes expansion at constant

A 1.79 mol diatomic gas initially at 274 K undergoes this cycle:
It is (1) heated at constant volume to 707 K, (2) then allowed to
expand isothermally to its initial pressure, (3) then compressed at
constant pressure to its initial state. Assuming the gas molecules
neither rotate nor oscillate, find (a) the net energy transferred
as heat to the gas (excluding energy transferred as heat out of the
gas), (b) the net work done by the gas, and (c)...

A 3.44 mol diatomic gas initially at 346 K undergoes this cycle:
It is (1) heated at constant volume to 909 K, (2) then allowed to
expand isothermally to its initial pressure, (3) then compressed at
constant pressure to its initial state. Assuming the gas molecules
neither rotate nor oscillate, find (a) the net energy transferred
as heat to the gas (excluding energy transferred as heat out of the
gas), (b) the net work done by the gas, and (c)...

Two streams of air are mixed in a steady-state process. Assume
air is an ideal gas with a constant heat capacity Cp=7R/2. Stream
A: 0.167 mol/s, 250K, 1 bar Stream B: 0.833 mol/s, 310K, 1 bar
Stream C: 1 bar (A and B going to the right into tank, and C going
to the right out of the tank) a) What is the temperature of the
stream leaving the tank if the process is adiabatic? b) What is the
rate...

It is possible to go from a given initial equilibrium state of a
system to a given final equilibrium state by a number of different
paths, involving different intermediate states and different
amounts of heat and work. Since the internal energy of a system is
a state function, its change between any two states must be
independent of the path chosen. The heat and work flows are,
however, path-dependent quantities and can differ on different
paths between given initial and...

1a-Consider a sealed, well-insulated tank filled with 10 moles
of gaseous nitrogen, at sufficiently low pressure that it can be
treated as an ideal gas. At an initial time, the methane is at a
temperature 300 K. A shaft passes into the tank and performs 100
Joules of shaft work per minute. What is the total change in the
internal energy of the tank over 10 minutes, in Joules?
b- For the system in problem 1, what is the temperature...
