Answer #1

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
volume doubles. At the same time a heat loss of 7 kJ occurs.
Part A)Determine the final temperature (T2).
Part B)Determine the duration of the process.
Part C)
What-if scenario: What is the final
temperature if the piston-cylinder device initially contains
saturated liquid water?

A piston cylinder device containing 0.5 kg of water has initial
volume of 0.5L. The device starts and goes through a Carnot cycle
and generates 500.3 kJ work. If the maximum temperature that water
will reach is 1.5 times the minimum temperature of water and during
heat rejection process, water goes from saturated vapor to
saturated liquid phase Find: 1. QH & QL for this cycle 2. TH
& TL for this cycle . 3. Maximum and minimum pressures that...

1 kg of water in a piston cylinder arrangement is initially in a
saturated liquid state at 1 bar. It undergoes expansion at constant
pressure due to external heat supply to it, to a final state of
saturated vapor.

96.71 (c) 99.63 (d) 111.4 (e) 12.2
(ii) What is the change in enthalpy of water (kJ/kg-K)? (a)
417.46 (b) 2258.0 (c) 2675.5 (d) 2506.1
(iii) What is...

a plunger cylinder device contains 0.8 kg of water at 4 Mpa and
500 ° C, it begins to lose heat causing the piston to descend to a
set of stops inside the cylinder, at which point saturated steam is
obtained through an isobaric process. Cooling continues until the
cylinder contains water at 1 atm pressure. The heat transferred
during this process is kJ

H3.3 A frictionless piston-cylinder device contains 2 kg of H2O
initially at T1 = 300◦C and p1 = 5 bar. The device is cooled at
constant pressure until the volume is ∀2 = 0.5 m3 . Assume a
quasiequillibrium process which occurs slowly with no acceleration
as the piston moves. Kinetic and potential energy effects are
negligible. Determine: a. work [kJ] during process (indicate
magnitude and direction) b. heat transfer [kJ] during process
(indicate magnitude and direction)

A piston-cylinder contains 25 g of saturated water vapor and
kept at 300 kPa. We add to the saturated water vapor an amount of
electrical work of 7.2 kJ (via a resistance heater).
Simultaneously, we lose 3.7 kJ from the water.

2.Determine the change in internal energy, the PV work, and the
enthalpy of the system.
3.Determine the final temperature of the system

A piston-cylinder contains 2 kg of refrigerant R-134a at

1) A nozzle is a device for increasing the velocity of a
steadily flowing stream of fluid. At the inlet to a certain nozzle
the enthalpy of the fluid is 3025 kJ/kg and the velocity is 60 m/s.
At the exit from the nozzle the enthalpy is 2790 kJ/kg. The nozzle
is horizontal and there is negligible heat loss from
it.
