BMCT 2713 THERMODYNAMICS I TUTORIAL 06 FACULTY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING BMCT 2713THERMODYNAMICS I TUTORIAL 06 1. The entropy of a hot baked potato decreases as it cools. Is this a violation of the increase of entropy principle? Explain. 2. Is it possible to create entropy? Is it possible to destroy it? 3. Is it possible for the entropy change of a closed system to be zero during an irreversible process? Explain. 4. Air is compressed by a 12 kW compressor from P 1 to P 2 . The air temperature is maintained constant at 25 o C during this process as a result of heat transfer to the surrounding medium at 10 o C. Determine the rate of entropy change of the air. State the assumption made in solving this problem. 5. During the isothermal heat addition process of a Carnot cycle, 900 kJ of heat is added to the working fluid from a source at 400 o C. Determine: a) The entropy change of the working fluid b) The entropy change of the source c) The total entropy change for the process.

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

### What students are saying

• 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.
