Chapter 7 Entropy Review Problems (cont.) 7-154 The validity of the Clausius inequality is to be demonstrated using a reversible and an irreversible heat engine operating between the same temperature limits. Analysis Consider two heat engines, one reversible and one irreversible, both operating between a high- temperature reservoir at T H and a low-temperature reservoir at T L . Both heat engines receive the same amount of heat, Q H . The reversible heat engine rejects heat in the amount of Q L , and the irreversible one in the amount of Q L, irrev = Q L + Q diff , where Q diff is a positive quantity since the irreversible heat engine produces less work. Noting that Q H and Q L are transferred at constant temperatures of T H and T L , respectively, the cyclic integral of δ Q/T for the reversible and irreversible heat engine cycles become 0 1 1 = - = - = - = L L H H L L H H L L H H rev T Q T Q Q T Q T T Q T Q T Q since ( Q H /T H ) = ( Q L /T L ) for reversible cycles. Also, 0 , < - = - - = - = L diff L diff L L H H L irrev L H H irr T Q T Q T Q T Q T Q T Q T Q since Q diff is a positive quantity.

Chapter 7 Entropy 7-155 The inner and outer surfaces of a window glass are maintained at specified temperatures. The amount of heat transfer through the glass and the amount of entropy generation within the glass in 5 h are to be determined Assumptions 1 Steady operating conditions exist since the surface temperatures of the glass remain constant at the specified values. 2 Thermal properties of the glass are constant. Analysis The amount of heat transfer over a period of 5 h is kJ 57,600 = × = = ) s 3600 5 )( kJ/s 3.2 ( t Q Q cond We take the glass to be the system, which is a closed system.

Chapter 7 Entropy 7-156 Two rigid tanks that contain water at different states are connected by a valve. The valve is opened and steam flows from tank A to tank B until the pressure in tank A drops to a specified value. Tank B loses heat to the surroundings. The final temperature in each tank and the entropy generated during this process are to be determined. Assumptions
