1 ME 201 Thermodynamics Transient System Practice Problems 1. A balloon initially contains 5 m 3 CO 2 at 100 kPa and 22 ° C. It is connected to a CO 2 gas line that provides CO 2 at 170 kPa and 30 ° C. The balloon is then filled to a pressure of 170 kPa. During this process the balloon is insulated and it is observed that the pressure and total volume are related by PV -1 = constant Determine the final temperature and volume of the balloon. 2. A pressure cooker used in cooking has a relief valve that normally opens at about 180 kPa and a volume of 3 liters. Initially, 2/3 of the volume of the pressure

    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.
