Prob 6.24 PROBLEM 6.24 PROBLEM STATEMENT: A frictionless piston-cylinder device undergoes a reversible adiabatic process from an initial condition of 200 kPa and 100 o C, to a final state of 200 kPa and 250 o C. The medium is helium. In what form did the energy transfer take place (heat transfer or work)? How much energy (kJ/kg) was transferred? How much boundary work was there? How much shaft work? DIAGRAM DEFINING SYSTEM AND PROCESS: w boundary w shaft State 1: P 1 =200 kPa T 1 =100 o C State 2: P 2 =200 kPa T 2 =250 o C GIVEN: Helium, with adiabatic and reversible process from state 1 to state 2 State 1: P 1 =200 kPa, T 1 =100 ° C State 2: P 2 =200 kPa, T 2 =250 ° C FIND: a).
