1 ME 201 Thermodynamics Second Law Practice Problems 1. Ideally, which fluid can do more work: air at 600 psia and 600°F or steam at 600 psia and 600°F 2. A heat pump provides 30,000 Btu/hr to maintain a dwelling at 68°F on a day when the outside temperature is 35°F. The power input to the pump is 1 hp. If electricity costs 8 cents per kilowatt-hour, compare the actual operating cost per day with the minimum theoretical operating cost per day. 3. A cylinder/piston system contains water at 200 kPa, 200°C with a volume of 20 liters. The piston is moved slowly, compressing the water to a pressure of 800 kPa. The process is polytropic with a polytropic exponent of 1. Assuming that the room temperature is 20°C, show that this process does not violate the second law. 4. When a man returns to his well-sealed house on a summer day, he finds that the house is at 32°C. He turns on the air conditioner which cools the entire house to 20°C in 15 minutes. If the COP of the heat pump system is 2.5, determine the
