Unformatted text preview: Lecture 17 1 step model processes Many real thermodynamic processes (apart from irreversibility) can be modeled as composed of a succession of one-step processes. Important examples of these building-block processes are: workfree (no change in volume, or zero external pressure); reversible isothermal (no change in temperature); reversible adiabatic (no heat flow). Example 1: Take O 2 from 1 bar, 300K to 5 bar at fixed volume. Compute U . Workfree, so dU = dQ . Need model to compute dQ ; use ideal gas. Pv = RT implies T 2 = 5 T 1 = 1500 K . Now use dU = C v dT ; need model for C v . C v = 20 + 0 . 05 T ; integrate. Example 2: Take O 2 at 50bar, 1500K to 50bar, 750K. Compute U . Isobaric (constant pressure), so W = P v . Need to know v 1 , v 2 . Again need EOS; use ideal gas. v = RT/P ; so W = R T . (( R = 8 . 314J / (molK); 1Cal = 4 . 19J.)) Now compute U : assume (again) ideal gas. So U = U ( T ) only; U = T 2 T 1 C v ( T ) dT . Again use C...
