4-1 Chapter 4 ENERGY ANALYSIS OF CLOSED SYSTEMS Moving Boundary Work 4-1C It represents the boundary work for quasi-equilibrium processes. 4-2C Yes. 4-3C The area under the process curve, and thus the boundary work done, is greater in the constant pressure case. 4-4C 1 kPa m 1 k(N /m ) m 1 kN m 1 kJ 32 3 ⋅= ⋅= ⋅= 4-5 Helium is compressed in a piston-cylinder device. The initial and final temperatures of helium and the work required to compress it are to be determined. Assumptions The process is quasi-equilibrium. Properties The gas constant of helium is R = 2.0769 kJ/kg K (Table A-1).
