SP-18. Methane gas is stored at a pressure of 150 bar and a temperature of -10ºC in a tank with a volume of 10 m 3 . Calculate the mass of methane in the tank using (a) the ideal gas equation of state (b) the generalized compressibility chart (c) the Van der Waals equation of state (iteration required, use ideal gas EOS solution for first guess) (d) EES Solution: (a) Ideal gas EOS 4 4 3 3 8.314 For methane: 16.04 0.5183 16.04 150 100 10 1100 0.5183 10 273.15 CH CH IG kJ kg kJ kmol K M R kg kmol kg K kmol kJ m p m m kg RT kJ K kg K (b) Generalized compressibility chart 4 4 , , 3 3 For methane: 191 46.4 263.15 150 For the tank conditions: 1.38, 3.23 191 46.4 v From the gen comp chart: 0.71 150 100 10 0.71 0.5183 10 C CH C CH R R C C GCC T K p bar T p T p T p p p Z RT mRT kJ m p m m ZRT kJ kg K 1550 273.15 kg K

SP-19. (a) One (1.0) kg of ammonia (NH 3 ) is contained in a piston cylinder device. The ammonia is present initially as a saturated liquid at a pressure of 2.0 bars and a temperature of -18.86 ºC. Heat is added to the piston cylinder device and the ammonia undergoes a phase change from a saturated liquid to a saturated vapor. The specific volume of the saturated liquid is 3 3 1.507 10 / m kg . Assume that the saturated vapor is an ideal gas. The temperature dependence of the ammonia saturation pressure is given by 2 2 , 67.745 , 0.1502 sat sat sat sat sat dp T T T K p kPa dT kPa kPa where K K

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
