Heat is being lost to the surroundings at 75°F at a rate of 80 Btu/s. Using the generalized charts, determine (a) the power output of the turbine and (b) the exergy destruction associated with the process. Answers: (a) 922 hp, (b) 121.5 Btu/s 12–82 An adiabatic 0.2-m3 storage tank that is initially evacuated is connected to a supply line that carries nitrogen at 225 K and 10 MPa. A valve is opened, and nitrogen flows into the tank from the supply line. The valve is closed when the pressure in the tank reaches 10 MPa. Determine the final temperature in the tank (a) treating nitrogen as an ideal gas and (b) using generalized charts. Compare your results to the actual value of 293 K.

Taking v v(P, T ), show that the change in specific volume can be expressed in terms of the volume expansivity b and isothermal compressibility a as dv v b dT a dP 12–90 Methane is contained in a piston–cylinder device and is heated at constant pressure of 4 MPa from 100 to 350°C. Determine the heat transfer, work and entropy change per unit mass of the methane using (a) the ideal-gas assumption, (b) the generalized charts, and (c) real fluid data from EES or other sources. Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam Problems 12–91 A substance whose Joule-Thomson coefficient is negative is throttled to a lower pressure. During this process, (select the correct statement) (a) the temperature of the substance will increase. (b) the temperature of the substance will decrease. (c) the entropy of the substance will remain constant. (d ) the entropy of the substance will decrease.

The magnitude of the slope of the tangent line to this curve at a temperature T (in Kelvin) is Also, assuming constant average values for b and a, obtain a relation for the ratio of the specific volumes v2/v1 as a homogeneous system undergoes a process from state 1 to state 2. 12–84 Repeat Prob. 12–83 for an isobaric process. cen84959_ch12.qxd 4/5/05 3:58 PM Page 680 680 | Thermodynamics v a T (a) proportional to the enthalpy of vaporization hfg at that temperature.

There is a systematic way of obtaining the four Maxwell relations as well as the four relations for du, dh, dg, and da from this figure. By comparing these relations to Koenig’s diagram, come up with the rules to obtain these eight thermodynamic relations from this diagram. 12–98 Several attempts have been made to express the partial derivatives of the most common thermodynamic properties in a compact and systematic manner in terms of measurable properties. The work of P. W. Bridgman is perhaps the most fruitful of all, and it resulted in the well-known Bridgman’s table. The 28 entries in that table are sufficient to express the partial derivatives of the eight common properties P, T, v, s, u, h, f, and g in terms of the six properties P, v, T, cp, b, and a, which can be measured directly or indirectly with relative ease. Obtain a copy of Bridgman’s table and explain, with examples, how it is used. 12–95 For a gas whose equation of state is P(v the specified heat difference cp cv is equal to (a) R (b) R b (c) R b (d ) 0 (e) R(1 + v/b) Design and Essay Problems 12–96 Consider the function z z(x, y). Write an essay on the physical interpretation of the ordinary derivative dz /dx and the partial derivative ( z / x)y. Explain how these two derivatives are related to each other and when they become equivalent. 12–97 There have been several attempts to represent the thermodynamic relations geometrically, the best known of these...
