The refrigerant is heated both electrically and by heat transfer at constant pressure for 6 min. The electric current is to be determined, and the process is to be shown on a Tv diagram. Assumptions 1 The cylinder is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are negligible. 2 The thermal energy stored in the cylinder itself and the wires is negligible. 3 The compression or expansion process is quasiequilibrium. Analysis We take the contents of the cylinder as the system. This is a closed system since no mass enters or leaves.

W Chapter 5 The First Law of Thermodynamics 5169 A cylinder is initially filled with saturated liquidvapor mixture of R134a at a specified pressure. Heat is transferred to the cylinder until the refrigerant vaporizes completely at constant pressure. The initial volume, the work done, and the total heat transfer are to be determined, and the process is to be shown on a Pv diagram. Assumptions 1 The cylinder is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are negligible. 2 The thermal energy stored in the cylinder itself is negligible. 3 The compression or expansion process is quasiequilibrium.
