MAE Thermodynamics Exam 1
February 16, 2009
Each problem is worth the points indicated. Closed book and closed notes. Cell phone must be turned off. No group work. You must be completed by 8:55 AM with the exam and appendix tables turned in. Clearly state any assumptions or unknowns. 1. For the following problems, place the correct answer next to the problem number in the space provided. No other credit will be given. Each question is worth 5 points each; Problem 1 is worth a total of 40 points. 1a. B The density and the specific volume of a simple compressible system are known. The number of additional intensive, independent properties needed to fix the state of this system is (A) 0 (B) 1 "The state of a simple compressible substance is fixed by two intensive, (C) 2 independent properties. Specific volume and density are dependent, so (D) 3 they count as one property. Therefore, we need one more property." (E) 4 1b. D A pressure gage connected to a tank reads 55 kPa at a location where the atmospheric pressure is 72.1 cmHg. The density of mercury is 13,600 kg/m3. The absolute pressure in the tank is Pabs = Pamb + Pgage = gh + Pgage (A) 41 kPa (B) 56 kPa kg m 1kN 1kPa (C) 82 kPa = 13600 3 9.81 2 ( 0.721m ) + 55kPa 2 2 m s (D) 151 kPa 1000kg m / s 1kN / m (E) 196 kPa = 151kPa 1c.

State the first law of thermodynamics in sentence format. Do not give a formula and do not state the first law equation formula in sentence format. The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can be neither created nor destroyed during a process; it can only change forms. See page 70.
