Suppose we cool isobutylene at 80bar and 752.2K to 500K. a) Compute the work done. W = P V = P ( v 2 v 1 ). To compute initial and final v, need EOS. This is not an ideal gas: T c = 417 . 9 K , P c = 40bar. So we need some EOS to compute the change in volume. We can use LeeKessler correlation, Haile p. 120 ff , given an acentric factor of = 0 . 194. b) Compute Q for the process. U = Q + W ; we know W , so we just need U . But, V is not constant, and the system is not an ideal gas, so dU has contributions from both dT and dV : dU = C v dT + ( T v P ) dv We cannot easily compute v = ( P/ T ) v using the LeeKessler formulation. We could use an analytical cubic EOS for the entire calculation... Instead, we introduce a new state function, enthalpy, that is convenient for constantpressure processes. Start with dU = dQ + dW = dQ Pdv . Consider H = U...
