Question

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 maximum work. What is the entropy change of steam in this case? What is the entropy change of the universe?

Entropy From Steam Tables
A piston-cylinder assembly contain 2 kg of water. The water is
initially at the pressure of 0.5 MPa and the temperature of 300°C.
The water is cooled down at constant pressure process until it is a
saturated vapor. Determine the change in the entropy of the
system.

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

A piston-cylinder device contains 0.9 kg of steam at
350⁰C and 1.4 MPa. Steam is cooled at constant
pressure until one-half of the mass condenses.
(a) show the process on a T-v and P-v diagrams,
(b) find the final temperature and
(c) determine the volume and entalphy changes.

A well-insulated (no heat transfer) piston cylinder contains 2
kg of saturated water vapor at 1 MPa. Steam expands reversibly
until the pressure drops to 0.5 MPa. Find the final temperature of
water and the work done during the expansion in kJ.

A piston cylinder device contains 0.15 kg of air initially at 2
MPa and 350 C. First, the air expands isothermally to a pressure of
500 kPa. Then, it is compressed polytropically back to the initial
pressure (2 MPa) with a polytropic exponent of 1.2. Find the work
performed or introduced by or to the air for each process. Express
it both times in kJ.

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...

Steam has 1.0 MPa, 80% dryness-2 fraction,This steam
is placed in a piston cylinder at constant pressure and heated
until its final volume became 0.2 m3. So, the amount of .heat

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...

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
steam is cooled. Determine the magnitude of the compression work if
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

Steam, initially at 700 lbf/in.2, 550°F undergoes a
polytropic process in a piston–cylinder assembly to a final
pressure of 2200 lbf/in.2 Kinetic and potential energy
effects are negligible.
Determine the heat transfer, in Btu per lb of steam, for a
polytropic exponent of 1.4,

(b) assuming ideal gas behavior.
