4.27 The rolling resistance of a car depends on its weight as: F = 0.006 mg. How long will a car of 1400 kg drive for a work input of 25 kJ? Solution: Work is force times distance so assuming a constant force we get W = ⌡⌠ F dx = F x = 0.006 mgx Solve for x x = W0.006 mg = 25 kJ0.006 × 1400 kg × 9.807 m/s2 = 303.5 m 4.39 Air in a spring loaded piston/cylinder has a pressure that is linear with volume, P = A + BV. With an initial state of P = 150 kPa, V = 1 L and a final state of 800 kPa and volume 1.5 L it is similar to the setup in Problem 3.113. Find the work done by the air. Solution: Knowing the process equation: P = A + BV giving a linear variation of pressure versus volume the straight line in the P-V diagram is fixed by the two points as state 1 and state 2. The work as the integral of PdV equals the area under the process curve in the P-V diagram. State 1: P1 = 150 kPa V1 = 1 L = 0.001 m3 State 2: P2 = 800 kPa V2 = 1.5 L = 0.0015 m3 Process: P = A + BV linear in V 1W2 = ⌡⌠ 1 2 PdV = (P1 + P22)(V2 - V1) = 12 (150 + 800) kPa (1.5 - 1) × 0.001 m3 = 0.2375 kJ 4.48 The piston/cylinder shown in Fig. P4.48 contains carbon dioxide at 300 kPa, 100°C with a volume of 0.2 m3. Mass is added at such a rate that the gas compresses according to the relation PV1.2 = constant to a final temperature of 200°C. Determine the work done during the process. Solution: From Eq. 4.4 for the polytopic process PVn = const ( n =/ 1 ) 1W2 = ⌡⌠ 1 2 PdV = P2V2 - P1V11 - n Assuming ideal gas, PV = mRT 1W2 = mR(T2 - T1)1 - n , But mR = P1V1T1 = 300 × 0.2373.15 kPa m3K = 0.1608 kJ/K 1W2 = 0.1608(473.2 - 373.2)1 - 1.2 kJ KK = -80.4 kJ 4.60 A cylinder containing 1 kg of ammonia has an externally loaded piston. Initially the ammonia is at 2 MPa, 180°C and is now cooled to saturated vapor at 40°C, and then further cooled to 20°C, at which point the quality is 50%. Find the total work for the process, assuming a piecewise linear variation of P versus V. Solution: State 1: (T, P) Table B.2.2 v1 = 0.10571 m3/kg State 2: (T, x) Table B.2.1 sat. vap. P2 = 1555 kPa, v2 = 0.08313 m3/kg State 3: (T, x) P3 = 857 kPa, v3 = (0.001638 + 0.14922)/2 = 0.07543 m3/kg Sum the the work as two integrals each evaluated by the area in the P-v diagram. 1W3 = ⌡⌠13 PdV ≈ ( P1 + P22 ) m(v2 - v1) + ( P2 + P32 ) m(v3 - v2) = 2000 + 15552 1(0.08313 - 0.10571) + 1555 + 8572 1(0.07543 - 0.08313) = -49.4 kJ 4.63 A piston/cylinder assembly (Fig. P4.63) has 1 kg of R-134a at state 1 with 110°C, 600 kPa, and is then brought to saturated vapor, state 2, by cooling while the piston is locked with a pin. Now the piston is balanced with an additional constant force and the pin is removed. The cooling continues to a state 3 where the R-134a is saturated liquid. Show the processes in a P-V diagram and find the work in each of the two steps, 1 to 2 and 2 to 3.
