Spring 2006 1 ME 201 Thermodynamics Homework #9 Solutions 1. A rigid wall, insulated container is divided into two regions by a removable wall. One region contains 1 lb m of kerosene at 100 ° F, while the other region contains 2 lb m of kerosene at 150 ° F. A stirrer is inserted into the container and when the wall between the two regions is removed the stirrer provides a shaft work input of 70 Btu. Determine the final temperature of the kerosene. Solution: System Type: Closed System Working Fluid: kerosene (incompressible substance) Process: Constant Volume Initial State Final State State 1 State 2 State 3 T 1 = 100 ° F = 560 R T 2 = 150 ° F = 610 R T 3 = 640 R = 182 ° F m 1 = 1 lb m m 2 = 2 lb m m 3 = 3 lb m Bold values are calculated. Q = 0 W sh = -70 Btu (into system) W bnd = 0 Initial State: Fixed Final State: UNKNOWN Conservation of Mass: m 1 + m 2 = m 3 1st Law: U final - U initial = -W sh Approach: To fix the final state we will use our process description along with the conservation of mass to determine the final mass. Then using the conservation of

    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.
