We find the efficiency from e = W / Q H = (2700 J)/(11,200 J) = 0.24 = 24% . 2. We find the efficiency from e = W / Q H = (8200 J)/(18.0 kcal)(4186 J/kcal) = 0.109 = 10.9% . 3. We find the rate of heat input from the efficiency: e = W / Q H = ( W / t )/( Q H / t ); 0.38 = (500 MW)/( Q H / t ), which gives Q H / t = 1316 MW. We find the rate of heat discharge from Q H / t = ( Q L / t ) + ( W / t ); 1316 MW = ( Q L / t ) + 500 MW, which gives Q L / t = 816 MW . 4. ( a ) We find the rate at which work is done from P = W / t = (180 J/cycle/cyl)(4 cyl)(25 cycles/s) = 1.8 × 10 4 J/s . ( b ) We find the heat input rate from e = W / Q H = ( W / t )/( Q H / t ); 0.25 = (1.8 × 10 4 J/s)/( Q H / t ), which gives Q H / t = 7.2 × 10 4 J/s . ( c ) We find the time to use one gallon from t = E /( Q H / t ) = (130 × 10 6 J/gal)(1 gal)/(7.2 × 10 4 J/s) = 1.81 × 10 3 s = 30 min . 5. We use the units to help us find the rate of heat input to the engine from the burning of the gasoline: Q H / t = [(3.0 × 10 4 kcal/gal)/(38 km/gal)](90 km/h)(4186 J/kcal) = 2.97 × 10 8 J/h. The horsepower is the work done by the engine. We find the efficiency from e = W / Q H = (20 hp)(746 W/hp)(3600 s/h)/(2.97 × 10 8 J/h) = 0.18 = 18% . 6. ( a ) Work is positive for an expansion. Because the work done is represented by the area under the PV curve, W bc > W ac . The net work is the sum of the works done in each leg. For a positive net work, W bc > 0, so we have an expansion from b to c, and the path must be clockwise. ( b ) We find the ratio of volumes from the ideal gas equation: ( P c / P a )/( V c / V a ) = T c / T a ; (1)( V c / V a ) = T c / T a , so V c / V a = V c / V b = T c / T a = T b / T a . The work done during the isothermal expansion is W bc = nRT b ln( V c / V b ) = nRT b ln( T b / T a ) = (1.0 mol)(8.315 J/mol ∙ K)(423 K) ln(423 K/273 K) = 1.54 × 10 3 J. The work done during the constant pressure compression is W ca = P a ( V a – V c ) = P a V a [1 – ( V c / V a )] = nRT a [1 – ( V c / V a )] = (1.0 mol)(8.315 J/mol ∙ K)(273 K)[1 – (423 K/273 K)] = – 1.25 × 10 3 J....
