ME 535 HW PROBLEM SET 4, F2019 1 A 100 L hot water tank has water at 25 o C, 200 kPa and it is now heated to become 80 o C at a constant pressure. Find the exergy increase of the water and the total exergy destruction if the heat source is: a) Electricity and b) A heat pump with COP of 2.75 drawing in heat from the ambient. 2 An energy recovery heat exchanger isused to heat water at 15C, 0.4 MPa to saturated vapor. The enrgy comes from 2 kg/s air flow at 800 K which leaves at 360 K both at 1 MPa. Find the changes in exergy of the flows and the overall 2 nd law efficiency of the heat exchanger. Use T o = 15C. 3 A heat engine operating with an evironment at 298 K produces 5 kW of power output with a first law efficiency of 50%. It has a second law efficiency of 80% and T L = 310 K. Find all the energy and exergy transfers in and out. 4 A concentrated solar power plant heats molten salt to 550 C so a counterflow

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
