ENERGY ANALYSIS OF CLOSED SYSTEMS
n Chap. 2, we considered various forms of energy and energy transfer, and we developed a general relation for the conservation of energy principle or energy balance. Then in Chap. 3, we learned how to determine the thermodynamics properties of substances. In this chapter, we apply the energy balance relation to systems that do not involve any mass flow across their boundaries; that is, closed systems. We start this chapter with a discussion of the moving boundary work or P dV work commonly encountered in reciprocating devices such as automotive engines and compressors. We continue by applying the general energy balance relation, which is simply expressed as Ein Eout Esystem, to systems that involve pure substance. Then we define specific heats, obtain relations for the internal energy and enthalpy of ideal gases in terms of specific heats and temperature changes, and perform energy balances on various systems that involve ideal gases. We repeat this for systems that involve solids and liquids, which are approximated as incompressible substances. I Objectives
The objectives of Chapter 4 are to: Examine the moving boundary work or P dV work commonly encountered in reciprocating devices such as automotive engines and compressors. Identify the first law of thermodynamics as simply a statement of the conservation of energy principle for closed (fixed mass) systems. Develop the general energy balance applied to closed systems. Define the specific heat at constant volume and the specific heat at constant pressure. Relate the specific heats to the calculation of the changes in internal energy and enthalpy of ideal gases. Describe incompressible substances and determine the changes in their internal energy and enthalpy. Solve energy balance problems for closed (fixed mass) systems that involve heat and work interactions for general pure substances, ideal gases, and incompressible substances.  165 166  Thermodynamics
INTERACTIVE TUTORIAL 41 MOVING BOUNDARY WORK SEE TUTORIAL CH. 4, SEC. 1 ON THE DVD. The moving boundary GAS FIGURE 41 The work associated with a moving boundary is called boundary work. F One form of mechanical work frequently encountered in practice is associated with the expansion or compression of a gas in a pistoncylinder device. During this process, part of the boundary (the inner face of the piston) moves back and forth. Therefore, the expansion and compression work is often called moving boundary work, or simply boundary work (Fig. 41). Some call it the P dV work for reasons explained later. Moving boundary work is the primary form of work involved in automobile engines. During their expansion, the combustion gases force the piston to move, which in turn forces the crankshaft to rotate. The moving boundary work associated with real engines or compressors cannot be determined exactly from a thermodynamic analysis alone because the piston usually moves at very high speeds, making it difficult for the gas inside to maintain equilibrium. Then the states through which the system passes during the process cannot be specified, and no process path can be drawn. Work, being a path function, cannot be determined analytically without a knowledge of the path. Therefore, the boundary work in real engines or compressors is determined by direct measurements. In this section, we analyze the moving boundary work for a quasiequilibrium process, a process during which the system remains nearly in equilibrium at all times. A quasiequilibrium process, also called a quasistatic process, is closely approximated by real engines, especially when the piston moves at low velocities. Under identical conditions, the work output of the engines is found to be a maximum, and the work input to the compressors to be a minimum when quasiequilibrium processes are used in place of nonquasiequilibrium processes. Below, the work associated with a moving boundary is evaluated for a quasiequilibrium process. Consider the gas enclosed in the pistoncylinder device shown in Fig. 42. The initial pressure of the gas is P, the total volume is V, and the crosssectional area of the piston is A. If the piston is allowed to move a distance ds in a quasiequilibrium manner, the differential work done during this process is
dWb F ds PA ds P dV
(41) A P GAS ds FIGURE 42 A gas does a differential amount of work dWb as it forces the piston to move by a differential amount ds. That is, the boundary work in the differential form is equal to the product of the absolute pressure P and the differential change in the volume dV of the system. This expression also explains why the moving boundary work is sometimes called the P dV work. Note in Eq. 41 that P is the absolute pressure, which is always positive. However, the volume change dV is positive during an expansion process (volume increasing) and negative during a compression process (volume decreasing). Thus, the boundary work is positive during an expansion process and negative during a compression process. Therefore, Eq. 41 can be viewed as an expression for boundary work output, Wb,out. A negative result indicates boundary work input (compression). The total boundary work done during the entire process as the piston moves is obtained by adding all the differential works from the initial state to the final state:

This integral can be evaluated only if we know the functional relationship between P and V during the process. That is, P f (V) should be available. Note that P f (V) is simply the equation of the process path on a PV diagram. The quasiequilibrium expansion process described is shown on a PV diagram in Fig. 4 3. On this diagram, the differential area dA is equal to P dV, which is the differential work. The total area A under the process curve 12 is obtained by adding these differential areas:
2 2  167 P 1 Process path 2 dA = P dV V1 dV V2 V Area A
1 dA
1 P dV (43) P A comparison of this equation with Eq. 42 reveals that the area under the process curve on a PV diagram is equal, in magnitude, to the work done during a quasiequilibrium expansion or compression process of a closed system. (On the Pv diagram, it represents the boundary work done per unit mass.) A gas can follow several different paths as it expands from state 1 to state 2. In general, each path will have a different area underneath it, and since this area represents the magnitude of the work, the work done will be different for each process (Fig. 4 4). This is expected, since work is a path function (i.e., it depends on the path followed as well as the end states). If work were not a path function, no cyclic devices (car engines, power plants) could operate as workproducing devices. The work produced by these devices during one part of the cycle would have to be consumed during another part, and there would be no net work output. The cycle shown in Fig. 45 produces a net work output because the work done by the system during the expansion process (area under path A) is greater than the work done on the system during the compression part of the cycle (area under path B), and the difference between these two is the net work done during the cycle (the colored area). If the relationship between P and V during an expansion or a compression process is given in terms of experimental data instead of in a functional form, obviously we cannot perform the integration analytically. But we can always plot the PV diagram of the process, using these data points, and calculate the area underneath graphically to determine the work done. Strictly speaking, the pressure P in Eq. 42 is the pressure at the inner surface of the piston. It becomes equal to the pressure of the gas in the cylinder only if the process is quasiequilibrium and thus the entire gas in the cylinder is at the same pressure at any given time. Equation 42 can also be used for nonquasiequilibrium processes provided that the pressure at the inner face of the piston is used for P. (Besides, we cannot speak of the pressure of a system during a nonquasiequilibrium process since properties are defined for equilibrium states only.) Therefore, we can generalize the boundary work relation by expressing it as

compression process). Therefore, it has to appear somewhere else and we must be able to account for it since energy is conserved. In a car engine, for example, the boundary work done by the expanding hot gases is used to overcome friction between the piston and the cylinder, to push atmospheric air out of the way, and to rotate the crankshaft. Therefore,

But note that the energy transferred by the system as work must equal the energy received by the crankshaft, the atmosphere, and the energy used to overcome friction. The use of the boundary work relation is not limited to the quasiequilibrium processes of gases only. It can also be used for solids and liquids. EXAMPLE 41 Boundary Work for a ConstantVolume Process A rigid tank contains air at 500 kPa and 150C. As a result of heat transfer to the surroundings, the temperature and pressure inside the tank drop to 65C and 400 kPa, respectively. Determine the boundary work done during this process. Solution Air in a rigid tank is cooled, and both the pressure and temperature drop. The boundary work done is to be determined.

Assumption The expansion process is quasiequilibrium. Analysis Even though it is not explicitly stated, the pressure of the steam within the cylinder remains constant during this process since both the atmospheric pressure and the weight of the piston remain constant.

EXAMPLE 43 Isothermal Compression of an Ideal Gas A pistoncylinder device initially contains 0.4 m3 of air at 100 kPa and 80C. The air is now compressed to 0.1 m3 in such a way that the temperature inside the cylinder remains constant. Determine the work done during this process. Solution Air in a pistoncylinder device is compressed isothermally. The
boundary work done is to be determined. Analysis A sketch of the system and the PV diagram of the process are shown in Fig. 48.

Ronald Mullisen For an ideal gas this result is equivalent to the isothermal process discussed in the previous example. EXAMPLE 44 Expansion of a Gas against a Spring A pistoncylinder device contains 0.05 m3 of a gas initially at 200 kPa. At this state, a linear spring that has a spring constant of 150 kN/m is touching the piston but exerting no force on it. Now heat is transferred to the gas, causing the piston to rise and to compress the spring until the volume inside the cylinder doubles. If the crosssectional area of the piston is 0.25 m2, determine (a) the final pressure inside the cylinder, (b) the total work done by 172  Thermodynamics
the gas, and (c) the fraction of this work done against the spring to compress it. Solution A gas in a pistoncylinder device equipped with a linear spring expands as a result of heating. The final gas pressure, the total work done, and the fraction of the work done to compress the spring are to be determined. Assumptions 1 The expansion process is quasiequilibrium. 2 The spring is linear in the range of interest. Analysis A sketch of the system and the PV diagram of the process are shown in Fig. 410.

The energy balance (or the firstlaw) relations already given are intuitive in nature and are easy to use when the magnitudes and directions of heat and work transfers are known. However, when performing a general analytical study or solving a problem that involves an unknown heat or work interaction, we need to assume a direction for the heat or work interactions. In such cases, it is common practice to use the classical thermodynamics sign convention and to assume heat to be transferred into the system (heat input) in the amount of Q and work to be done by the system (work output) in the amount of W, and then to solve the problem. The energy balance relation in that case for a closed system becomes

EXPERIMENT where Q Qnet,in Qin Qout is the net heat input and W Wnet,out Wout Win is the net work output. Obtaining a negative quantity for Q or W simply means that the assumed direction for that quantity is wrong and should be reversed. Various forms of this "traditional" firstlaw relation for closed systems are given in Fig. 412. The first law cannot be proven mathematically, but no process in nature is known to have violated the first law, and this should be taken as sufficient proof. Note that if it were possible to prove the first law on the basis of other physical principles, the first law then would be a consequence of those principles instead of being a fundamental physical law itself. As energy quantities, heat and work are not that different, and you probably wonder why we keep distinguishing them. After all, the change in the energy content of a system is equal to the amount of energy that crosses the system boundaries, and it makes no difference whether the energy crosses the boundary as heat or work. It seems as if the firstlaw relations would be much simpler if we had just one quantity that we could call energy interaction to represent both heat and work. Well, from the firstlaw point of view, heat and work are not different at all. From the secondlaw point of view, however, heat and work are very different, as is discussed in later chapters.
EXAMPLE 45 Electric Heating of a Gas at Constant Pressure A pistoncylinder device contains 25 g of saturated water vapor that is maintained at a constant pressure of 300 kPa. A resistance heater within the cylinder is turned on and passes a current of 0.2 A for 5 min from a 120V source. At the same time, a heat loss of 3.7 kJ occurs. (a) Show that for a closed system the boundary work Wb and the change in internal energy U in the firstlaw relation can be combined into one term, H, for a constantpressure process. (b) Determine the final temperature of the steam. Solution Saturated water vapor in a pistoncylinder device expands at constant pressure as a result of heating. It is to be shown that U Wb H, and the final temperature is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The tank is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are zero, KE PE 0. Therefore, E U and internal energy is the only form of energy of the system that may change during this process. 2 Electrical wires constitute a very small part of the system, and thus the energy change of the wires can be neglected.

Also, heat is lost from the system and electrical work We is done on the system. (a) This part of the solution involves a general analysis for a closed system undergoing a quasiequilibrium constantpressure process, and thus we consider a general closed system. We take the direction of heat transfer Q to be to the system and the work W to be done by the system. We also express the work as the sum of boundary and other forms of work (such as electrical and shaft). Then the energy balance can be expressed as Use actual data from the experiment shown here to verify the first law of thermodynamics. See endofchapter problem 4176.

Assuming an elevation change of 1 m (which is rather unlikely), the change in the potential energy of the steam would be 0.0002 kJ, which is very small compared to the other terms in the firstlaw relation. Therefore, in problems of this kind, the potential energy term is always neglected. FIGURE 414 For a closed system undergoing a quasiequilibrium, P constant process, U Wb H. EXAMPLE 46 Unrestrained Expansion of Water A rigid tank is divided into two equal parts by a partition. Initially, one side of the tank contains 5 kg of water at 200 kPa and 25C, and the other side is evacuated. The partition is then removed, and the water expands into the entire tank. The water is allowed to exchange heat with its surroundings until the temperature in the tank returns to the initial value of 25C. Determine (a) the volume of the tank, (b) the final pressure, and (c) the heat transfer for this process. Solution One half of a rigid tank is filled with liquid water while the other
side is evacuated. The partition between the two parts is removed and water is allowed to expand and fill the entire tank while the temperature is maintained constant. The volume of tank, the final pressure, and the heat transfer are to be to determined. Chapter 4
Assumptions 1 The system is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are zero, KE PE 0 and E U. 2 The direction of heat transfer is to the system (heat gain, Qin). A negative result for Qin indicates the assumed direction is wrong and thus it is a heat loss. 3 The volume of the rigid tank is constant, and thus there is no energy transfer as boundary work. 4 The water temperature remains constant during the process. 5 There is no electrical, shaft, or any other kind of work involved. Analysis We take the contents of the tank, including the evacuated space, as the system (Fig. 415). This is a closed system since no mass crosses the system boundary during the process. We observe that the water fills the entire tank when the partition is removed (possibly as a liquidvapor mixture). (a) Initially the water in the tank exists as a compressed liquid since its pressure (200 kPa) is greater than the saturation pressure at 25C (3.1698 kPa).

INTERACTIVE TUTORIAL SEE TUTORIAL CH. 4, SEC. 3 ON THE DVD. We know from experience that it takes different amounts of energy to raise the temperature of identical masses of different substances by one degree. For example, we need about 4.5 kJ of energy to raise the temperature of 1 kg of iron from 20 to 30C, whereas it takes about 9 times this energy (41.8 kJ to be exact) to raise the temperature of 1 kg of liquid water by the same amount (Fig. 417). Therefore, it is desirable to have a property that will enable us to compare the energy storage capabilities of various substances. This property is the specific heat. The specific heat is defined as the energy required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of a substance by one degree (Fig. 418). In general, this energy depends on how the process is executed. In thermodynamics, we are interested in two kinds of specific heats: specific heat at constant volume cv and specific heat at constant pressure cp. Physically, the specific heat at constant volume cv can be viewed as the energy required to raise the temperature of the unit mass of a substance by one degree as the volume is maintained constant. The energy required to Chapter 4
do the same as the pressure is maintained constant is the specific heat at constant pressure cp. This is illustrated in Fig. 419. The specific heat at constant pressure cp is always greater than cv because at constant pressure the system is allowed to expand and the energy for this expansion work must also be supplied to the system. Now we attempt to express the specific heats in terms of other thermodynamic properties. First, consider a fixed mass in a stationary closed system undergoing a constantvolume process (and thus no expansion or compression eout esystem work is involved). The conservation of energy principle ein for this process can be expressed in the differential form as

m = 1 kg T = 1C cv = 3.12 kJ kg. C P = constant m = 1 kg T = 1 C cp = 5.19 kJ kg.C 3.12 kJ 5.19 kJ The lefthand side of this equation represents the net amount of energy transferred to the system. From the definition of cv, this energy must be equal to cv dT, where dT is the differential change in temperature. Thus,
cv d T du at constant volume FIGURE 419 Constantvolume and constantpressure specific heats cv and cp (values given are for helium gas). or
cv a 0u b 0T v
(419) Similarly, an expression for the specific heat at constant pressure cp can be obtained by considering a constantpressure expansion or compression process. It yields
cp a 0h b 0T p
(420) cv = u Equations 4 19 and 4 20 are the defining equations for cv and cp, and their interpretation is given in Fig. 4 20. Note that cv and cp are expressed in terms of other properties; thus, they must be properties themselves. Like any other property, the specific heats of a substance depend on the state that, in general, is specified by two independent, intensive properties. That is, the energy required to raise the temperature of a substance by one degree is different at different temperatures and pressures (Fig. 421). But this difference is usually not very large. A few observations can be made from Eqs. 419 and 420. First, these equations are property relations and as such are independent of the type of processes. They are valid for any substance undergoing any process. The only relevance cv has to a constantvolume process is that cv happens to be the energy transferred to a system during a constantvolume process per unit mass per unit degree rise in temperature. This is how the values of cv are determined. This is also how the name specific heat at constant volume originated. Likewise, the energy transferred to a system per unit mass per unit temperature rise during a constantpressure process happens to be equal to cp. This is how the values of cp can be determined and also explains the origin of the name specific heat at constant pressure. Another observation that can be made from Eqs. 419 and 420 is that cv is related to the changes in internal energy and cp to the changes in enthalpy. In fact, it would be more proper to define cv as the change in the internal energy of a substance per unit change in temperature at constant ( (
T v = the change in internal energy with temperature at constant volume cp = h T p = the change in enthalpy with temperature at constant pressure ( ( FIGURE 420 Formal definitions of cv and cp. 180

Likewise, cp can be defined as the change in the enthalpy of a substance per unit change in temperature at constant pressure. In other words, cv is a measure of the variation of internal energy of a substance with temperature, and cp is a measure of the variation of enthalpy of a substance with temperature. Both the internal energy and enthalpy of a substance can be changed by the transfer of energy in any form, with heat being only one of them. Therefore, the term specific energy is probably more appropriate than the term specific heat, which implies that energy is transferred (and stored) in the form of heat. A common unit for specific heats is kJ/kg C or kJ/kg K. Notice that these two units are identical since T(C) T(K), and 1C change in temperature is equivalent to a change of 1 K. The specific heats are some times given on a molar basis. They are then denoted by cv and cp and have the unit kJ/kmol C or kJ/kmol K.

Pv RT We defined an ideal gas as a gas whose temperature, pressure, and specific volume are related by It has been demonstrated mathematically (Chap. 12) and experimentally (Joule, 1843) that for an ideal gas the internal energy is a function of the temperature only. That is,

(421) Thermometer WATER AIR (high pressure) Evacuated FIGURE 422 Schematic of the experimental apparatus used by Joule. In his classical experiment, Joule submerged two tanks connected with a pipe and a valve in a water bath, as shown in Fig. 422. Initially, one tank contained air at a high pressure and the other tank was evacuated. When thermal equilibrium was attained, he opened the valve to let air pass from one tank to the other until the pressures equalized. Joule observed no change in the temperature of the water bath and assumed that no heat was transferred to or from the air. Since there was also no work done, he concluded that the internal energy of the air did not change even though the volume and the pressure changed. Therefore, he reasoned, the internal energy is a function of temperature only and not a function of pressure or specific volume. (Joule later showed that for gases that deviate significantly from idealgas behavior, the internal energy is not a function of temperature alone.) Using the definition of enthalpy and the equation of state of an ideal gas, we have
h Pv u Pv f RT h u RT Since R is constant and u u(T), it follows that the enthalpy of an ideal gas is also a function of temperature only:
h h 1T2
(422) Chapter 4
Since u and h depend only on temperature for an ideal gas, the specific heats cv and cp also depend, at most, on temperature only. Therefore, at a given temperature, u, h, cv, and cp of an ideal gas have fixed values regardless of the specific volume or pressure (Fig. 4 23). Thus, for ideal gases, the partial derivatives in Eqs. 4 19 and 420 can be replaced by ordinary derivatives. Then the differential changes in the internal energy and enthalpy of an ideal gas can be expressed as
du cv 1T2 dT cp 1T2 dT

1 cv 1T2 dT 1kJ>kg2 (425) and
2 h h2 h1
1 cp 1T2 dT 1kJ>kg2 (426) To carry out these integrations, we need to have relations for cv and cp as functions of temperature. At low pressures, all real gases approach idealgas behavior, and therefore their specific heats depend on temperature only. The specific heats of real gases at low pressures are called idealgas specific heats, or zeropressure specific heats, and are often denoted cp0 and cv 0. Accurate analytical expressions for idealgas specific heats, based on direct measurements or calculations from statistical behavior of molecules, are available and are given as thirddegree polynomials in the appendix (Table A2c) for several gases. A plot of cp0(T) data for some common gases is given in Fig. 4 24. The use of idealgas specific heat data is limited to low pressures, but these data can also be used at moderately high pressures with reasonable accuracy as long as the gas does not deviate from idealgas behavior significantly. The integrations in Eqs. 4 25 and 426 are straightforward but rather timeconsuming and thus impractical. To avoid these laborious calculations, u and h data for a number of gases have been tabulated over small temperature intervals. These tables are obtained by choosing an arbitrary reference point and performing the integrations in Eqs. 425 and 426 by treating state 1 as the reference state. In the idealgas tables given in the appendix, zero kelvin is chosen as the reference state, and both the enthalpy and the internal energy are assigned zero values at that state (Fig. 425). The choice of the reference state has no effect on u or h calculations. The u and h data are given in kJ/kg for air (Table A17) and usually in kJ/kmol for other gases. The unit kJ/kmol is very convenient in the thermodynamic analysis of chemical reactions. Some observations can be made from Fig. 4 24. First, the specific heats of gases with complex molecules (molecules with two or more atoms) are higher and increase with temperature. Also, the variation of specific heats Cp0 kJ/kmol K

with temperature is smooth and may be approximated as linear over small temperature intervals (a few hundred degrees or less). Therefore the specific heat functions in Eqs. 4 25 and 4 26 can be replaced by the constant average specific heat values. Then the integrations in these equations can be performed, yielding

The average specific heats cp,avg and cv,avg are evaluated from this table at the average temperature (T1 + T2)/2, as shown in Fig. 426. If the final temperature T2 is not known, the specific heats may be evaluated at T1 or at the anticipated average temperature. Then T2 can be determined by using these specific heat values. The value of T2 can be refined, if necessary, by evaluating the specific heats at the new average temperature. Another way of determining the average specific heats is to evaluate them at T1 and T2 and then take their average. Usually both methods give reasonably good results, and one is not necessarily better than the other. Another observation that can be made from Fig. 4 24 is that the idealgas specific heats of monatomic gases such as argon, neon, and helium remain constant over the entire temperature range. Thus, u and h of monatomic gases can easily be evaluated from Eqs. 4 27 and 4 28. Note that the u and h relations given previously are not restricted to any kind of process. They are valid for all processes. The presence of the constantvolume specific heat cv in an equation should not lead one to believe that this equation is valid for a constantvolume process only. On the contrary, the relation u cv,avg T is valid for any ideal gas undergoing any process (Fig. 427). A similar argument can be given for cp and h. To summarize, there are three ways to determine the internal energy and enthalpy changes of ideal gases (Fig. 4 28): 1. By using the tabulated u and h data. This is the easiest and most accurate way when tables are readily available. 2. By using the cv or cp relations as a function of temperature and performing the integrations. This is very inconvenient for hand calculations but quite desirable for computerized calculations. The results obtained are very accurate. 3. By using average specific heats. This is very simple and certainly very convenient when property tables are not available. The results obtained are reasonably accurate if the temperature interval is not very large. T1 T avg T2 T FIGURE 426 For small temperature intervals, the specific heats may be assumed to vary linearly with temperature. Specific Heat Relations of Ideal Gases
A special relationship between cp and cv for ideal gases can be obtained by differentiating the relation h u RT, which yields
dh du R dT Chapter 4
Replacing dh by cp dT and du by cv dT and dividing the resulting expression by dT, we obtain
cp cv R 1kJ>kg # K2
(429) AIR V = constant T1 = 20 C T2 = 30 C  183 This is an important relationship for ideal gases since it enables us to determine cv from a knowledge of cp and the gas constant R. When the specific heats are given on a molar basis, R in the above equation should be replaced by the universal gas constant Ru (Fig. 429).

k cp cv
(431) u = cv T = 7.18 kJ/kg The specific ratio also varies with temperature, but this variation is very mild. For monatomic gases, its value is essentially constant at 1.667. Many diatomic gases, including air, have a specific heat ratio of about 1.4 at room temperature. FIGURE 427 The relation u cv T is valid for any kind of process, constantvolume or not.

Assumptions At specified conditions, air can be considered to be an ideal gas since it is at a high temperature and low pressure relative to its criticalpoint values. Analysis The internal energy change u of ideal gases depends on the initial and final temperatures only, and not on the type of process. Thus, the following solution is valid for any kind of process. (a) One way of determining the change in internal energy of air is to read the u values at T1 and T2 from Table A17 and take the difference: FIGURE 428 Three ways of calculating u. u1 u2

This close agreement is not surprising since the assumption that cv varies linearly with temperature is a reasonable one at temperature intervals of only a few hundred degrees. If we had used the cv value at T1 300 K instead of at Tavg, the result would be 215.4 kJ/kg, which is in error by about 2 percent. Errors of this magnitude are acceptable for most engineering purposes.

The final temperature and pressure of helium are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Helium is an ideal gas since it is at a very high temperature relative to its criticalpoint value of 451F. 2 Constant specific heats can be used for helium. 3 The system is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are zero, KE PE 0 and E U. 4 The volume of the tank is constant, and thus there is no boundary work. 5 The system is adiabatic and thus there is no heat transfer.

Assumptions 1 Nitrogen is an ideal gas since it is at a high temperature and low pressure relative to its criticalpoint values of 147C, and 3.39 MPa. 2 The system is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are zero, KE PE 0 and E U. 3 The pressure remains constant during the process and thus P2 P1. 4 Nitrogen has constant specific heats at room temperature.

At this state, the piston is resting on a pair of stops, as shown in Fig. 432, and the enclosed volume is 400 L. The mass of the piston is such that a 350kPa pressure is required to move it. The air is now heated until its volume has doubled. Determine (a) the final temperature, (b) the work done by the air, and (c) the total heat transferred to the air. Solution Air in a pistoncylinder device with a set of stops is heated until
its volume is doubled. The final temperature, work done, and the total heat transfer are to be determined. Assumptions 1 Air is an ideal gas since it is at a high temperature and low pressure relative to its criticalpoint values. 2 The system is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are zero, KE PE 0 and E U. 3 The volume remains constant until the piston starts moving, and the pressure remains constant afterwards. 4 There are no electrical, shaft, or other forms of work involved.

Chapter 4  189 45 INTERNAL ENERGY, ENTHALPY, AND SPECIFIC HEATS OF SOLIDS AND LIQUIDS INTERACTIVE TUTORIAL SEE TUTORIAL CH. 4, SEC. 5 ON THE DVD. A substance whose specific volume (or density) is constant is called an incompressible substance. The specific volumes of solids and liquids essentially remain constant during a process (Fig. 433). Therefore, liquids and solids can be approximated as incompressible substances without sacrificing much in accuracy. The constantvolume assumption should be taken to imply that the energy associated with the volume change is negligible compared with other forms of energy. Otherwise, this assumption would be ridiculous for studying the thermal stresses in solids (caused by volume change with temperature) or analyzing liquidinglass thermometers. It can be mathematically shown that (see Chap. 12) the constantvolume and constantpressure specific heats are identical for incompressible substances (Fig. 434). Therefore, for solids and liquids, the subscripts on cp and cv can be dropped, and both specific heats can be represented by a single symbol c. That is,
cp cv c
(432) LIQUID vl = constant SOLID vs = constant FIGURE 433 The specific volumes of incompressible substances remain constant during a process. This result could also be deduced from the physical definitions of constantvolume and constantpressure specific heats. Specific heat values for several common liquids and solids are given in Table A3. Internal Energy Changes
Like those of ideal gases, the specific heats of incompressible substances depend on temperature only. Thus, the partial differentials in the defining equation of cv can be replaced by ordinary differentials, which yield

h @P,T hf @ T vf @ T 1P Psat @ T 2
(438) as discussed in Chap. 3. This is an improvement over the assumption that the enthalpy of the compressed liquid could be taken as hf at the given temperature (that is, h@ P,T hf @ T). However, the contribution of the last term is often very small, and is neglected. (Note that at high temperature and pressures, Eq. 438 may overcorrect the enthalpy and result in a larger error than the approximation h hf @ T.) EXAMPLE 411 Enthalpy of Compressed Liquid Determine the enthalpy of liquid water at 100C and 15 MPa (a) by using compressed liquid tables, (b) by approximating it as a saturated liquid, and (c) by using the correction given by Eq. 438. Solution The enthalpy of liquid water is to be determined exactly and
approximately. Analysis At 100C, the saturation pressure of water is 101.42 kPa, and since P Psat, the water exists as a compressed liquid at the specified state.

EXAMPLE 412 Cooling of an Iron Block by Water  191 A 50kg iron block at 80C is dropped into an insulated tank that contains 0.5 m3 of liquid water at 25C. Determine the temperature when thermal equilibrium is reached. Solution An iron block is dropped into water in an insulated tank. The final
temperature when thermal equilibrium is reached is to be determined. Assumptions 1 Both water and the iron block are incompressible substances. 2 Constant specific heats at room temperature can be used for water and the iron. 3 The system is stationary and thus the kinetic and potential energy changes are zero, KE PE 0 and E U. 4 There are no electrical, shaft, or other forms of work involved. 5 The system is wellinsulated and thus there is no heat transfer. Analysis We take the entire contents of the tank as the system (Fig. 435). This is a closed system since no mass crosses the system boundary during the process. We observe that the volume of a rigid tank is constant, and thus there is no boundary work. The energy balance on the system can be expressed as WATER 25C IRON m = 50 kg 80C 0.5 m 3 E in E out E system Change in internal, kinetic, potential, etc., energies Net energy transfer by heat, work, and mass FIGURE 435 Schematic for Example 412. The total internal energy U is an extensive property, and therefore it can be expressed as the sum of the internal energies of the parts of the system. Then the total internal energy change of the system becomes 3mc 1T2 The specific volume of liquid water at or about room temperature can be taken to be 0.001 m3/kg. Then the mass of the water is mwater The specific heats of iron and liquid water are determined from Table A3 to be ciron 0.45 kJ/kg C and cwater 4.18 kJ/kg C. Substituting these values into the energy equation, we obtain 150 kg 2 10.45 kJ>kg # C2 1T2 Therefore, when thermal equilibrium is established, both the water and iron will be at 25.6C.

EXAMPLE 413 Temperature Rise due to Slapping If you ever slapped someone or got slapped yourself, you probably remember the burning sensation. Imagine you had the unfortunate occasion of being slapped by an angry person, which caused the temperature of the affected area of your face to rise by 1.8C (ouch!). Assuming the slapping hand has a mass of 1.2 kg and about 0.150 kg of the tissue on the face and the hand is affected by the incident, estimate the velocity of the hand just before impact. Take the specific heat of the tissue to be 3.8 kJ/kg C. Solution The face of a person is slapped. For the specified temperature
rise of the affected part, the impact velocity of the hand is to be determined. Assumptions 1 The hand is brought to a complete stop after the impact. 2 The face takes the blow without significant movement. 3 No heat is transferred from the affected area to the surroundings, and thus the process is adiabatic. 4 No work is done on or by the system. 5 The potential energy change is zero, PE 0 and E U KE. Analysis We analyze this incident in a professional manner without involving any emotions. First, we identify the system, draw a sketch of it, and state our observations about the specifics of the problem. We take the hand and the affected portion of the face as the system (Fig. 436). This is a closed system since it involves a fixed amount of mass (no mass transfer). We observe that the kinetic energy of the hand decreases during the process, as evidenced by a decrease in velocity from initial value to zero, while the internal energy of the affected area increases, as evidenced by an increase in the temperature. There seems to be no significant energy transfer between the system and its surroundings during this process. Under the stated assumptions and observations, the energy balance on the system can be expressed as FIGURE 436 Schematic for Example 413. E in E out E system
Change in internal, kinetic, potential, etc., energies Net energy transfer by heat, work, and mass That is, the decrease in the kinetic energy of the hand must be equal to the increase in the internal energy of the affected area. Solving for the velocity and substituting the given quantities, the impact velocity of the hand is determined to be Vhand Discussion Reconstruction of events such as this by making appropriate assumptions are commonly used in forensic engineering. 0 0 Uaffected tissue 1mcT2 affected tissue KEhand 3m 10 V 2 2>2 4 hand 2 1mcT2 affected tissue mhand B 2 10.15 kg2 13.8 kJ>kg # C2 11.8C2 1000 m2>s2 a b B 1.2 kg 1 kJ>kg 41.4 m>s 1or 149 km>h2 Chapter 4 TOPIC OF SPECIAL INTEREST*  193 Thermodynamic Aspects of Biological Systems An important and exciting application area of thermodynamics is biological systems, which are the sites of rather complex and intriguing energy transfer and transformation processes. Biological systems are not in thermodynamic equilibrium, and thus they are not easy to analyze. Despite their complexity, biological systems are primarily made up of four simple elements: hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. In the human body, hydrogen accounts for 63 percent, oxygen 25.5 percent, carbon 9.5 percent, and nitrogen 1.4 percent of all the atoms. The remaining 0.6 percent of the atoms comes from 20 other elements essential for life. By mass, about 72 percent of the human body is water. The building blocks of living organisms are cells, which resemble miniature factories performing functions that are vital for the survival of organisms. A biological system can be as simple as a single cell. The human body contains about 100 trillion cells with an average diameter of 0.01 mm. The membrane of the cell is a semipermeable wall that allows some substances to pass through it while excluding others. In a typical cell, thousands of chemical reactions occur every second during which some molecules are broken down and energy is released and some new molecules are formed. This high level of chemical activity in the cells, which maintains the human body at a temperature of 37C while performing the necessary bodily tasks, is called metabolism. In simple terms, metabolism refers to the burning of foods such as carbohydrates, fat, and protein. The rate of metabolism in the resting state is called the basal metabolic rate, which is the rate of metabolism required to keep a body performing the necessary functions (such as breathing and blood circulation) at zero external activity level. The metabolic rate can also be interpreted as the energy consumption rate for a body. For an average male (30 years old, 70 kg, 1.8m2 body surface area), the basal metabolic rate is 84 W. That is, the body dissipates energy to the environment at a rate of 84 W, which means that the body is converting chemical energy of the food (or of the body fat if the person has not eaten) into thermal energy at a rate of 84 W (Fig. 437). The metabolic rate increases with the level of activity, and it may exceed 10 times the basal metabolic rate when a body is doing strenuous exercise. That is, two people doing heavy exercising in a room may be supplying more energy to the room than a 1kW electrical resistance heater (Fig. 438). The fraction of sensible heat varies from about 40 percent in the case of heavy work to about 70 percent in the case of light work. The rest of the energy is rejected from the body by perspiration in the form of latent heat. The basal metabolic rate varies with sex, body size, general health conditions, and so forth, and decreases considerably with age. This is one of the reasons people tend to put on weight in their late twenties and thirties even though they do not increase their food intake. The brain and the liver are the major sites of metabolic activity. These two organs are responsible for almost 50 percent of the basal metabolic rate of an adult human body although they constitute only about 4 percent of the body mass. In small children, it is remarkable that about half of the basal metabolic activity occurs in the brain alone.

The temperature of the cell tends to rise when some chemical energy is converted to heat, but this energy is quickly transferred to the circulatory system, which transports it to outer parts of the body and eventually to the environment through the skin. The muscle cells function very much like an engine, converting the chemical energy into mechanical energy (work) with a conversion efficiency of close to 20 percent. When the body does no net work on the environment (such as moving some furniture upstairs), the entire work is also converted to heat. In that case, the entire chemical energy in the food released during metabolism in the body is eventually transferred to the environment. A TV set that consumes electricity at a rate of 300 W must reject heat to its environment at a rate of 300 W in steady operation regardless of what goes on in the set. That is, turning on a 300W TV set or three 100W light bulbs will produce the same heating effect in a room as a 300W resistance heater (Fig. 439). This is a consequence of the conservation of energy principle, which requires that the energy input into a system must equal the energy output when the total energy content of a system remains constant during a process. Food and Exercise
The energy requirements of a body are met by the food we eat. The nutrients in the food are considered in three major groups: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Carbohydrates are characterized by having hydrogen and oxygen atoms in a 2:1 ratio in their molecules. The molecules of carbohydrates range from very simple (as in plain sugar) to very complex or large (as in starch). Bread and plain sugar are the major sources of carbohydrates. Proteins are very large molecules that contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, and they are essential for the building and repairing of the body tissues. Proteins are made up of smaller building blocks called amino acids. Complete proteins such as meat, milk, and eggs have all the amino acids needed to build body tissues. Plant source proteins such as those in fruits, vegetables, and grains lack one or more amino acids, and are called incomplete proteins. Fats are relatively small molecules that consist of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Vegetable oils and animal fats are major sources of fats. Most foods we eat contain all three nutrition groups at varying amounts. The typical average American diet consists of 45 percent carbohydrate, 40 percent fat, and 15 percent protein, although it is recommended that in a healthy diet less than 30 percent of the calories should come from fat. The energy content of a given food is determined by burning a small sample of the food in a device called a bomb calorimeter, which is basically a wellinsulated rigid tank (Fig. 440). The tank contains a small combustion chamber surrounded by water. The food is ignited and burned in the combustion chamber in the presence of excess oxygen, and the energy released is transferred to the surrounding water. The energy content of the food is calculated on the basis of the conservation of energy principle by measuring the temperature rise of the water. The carbon in the food is converted into CO2 and hydrogen into H2O as the food burns. The same chemical reactions occur in the body, and thus the same amount of energy is released. Using dry (free of water) samples, the average energy contents of the three basic food groups are determined by bomb calorimeter measurements to be FIGURE 439 Some arrangements that supply a room the same amount of energy as a 300W electric resistance heater.

18.0 MJ/kg for carbohydrates, 22.2 MJ/kg for proteins, and 39.8 MJ/kg for fats. These food groups are not entirely metabolized in the human body, however. The fraction of metabolizable energy contents are 95.5 percent for carbohydrates, 77.5 percent for proteins, and 97.7 percent for fats. That is, the fats we eat are almost entirely metabolized in the body, but close to one quarter of the protein we eat is discarded from the body unburned. This corresponds to 4.1 Calories/g for proteins and carbohydrates and 9.3 Calories/g for fats (Fig. 441) commonly seen in nutrition books and on food labels. The energy contents of the foods we normally eat are much lower than the values above because of the large water content (water adds bulk to the food but it cannot be metabolized or burned, and thus it has no energy value). Most vegetables, fruits, and meats, for example, are mostly water. The average metabolizable energy contents of the three basic food groups are 4.2 MJ/kg for carbohydrates, 8.4 MJ/kg for proteins, and 33.1 MJ/kg for fats. Note that 1 kg of natural fat contains almost 8 times the metabolizable energy of 1 kg of natural carbohydrates. Thus, a person who fills his stomach with fatty foods is consuming much more energy than a person who fills his stomach with carbohydrates such as bread or rice. The metabolizable energy content of foods is usually expressed by nutritionists in terms of the capitalized Calories. One Calorie is equivalent to one kilocalorie (1000 calories), which is equivalent to 4.1868 kJ. That is,
1 Cal 1Calorie2 1000 calories 1 kcal 1kilocalorie2 4.1868 kJ  195 FIGURE 441 Evaluating the calorie content of one serving of chocolate chip cookies (values are for Chips Ahoy cookies made by Nabisco). Vol. 30/PhotoDisc The calorie notation often causes confusion since it is not always followed in the tables or articles on nutrition. When the topic is food or fitness, a calorie normally means a kilocalorie whether it is capitalized or not. The daily calorie needs of people vary greatly with age, gender, the state of health, the activity level, the body weight, and the composition of the body as well as other factors. A small person needs fewer calories than a larger person of the same sex and age. An average man needs about 2400 to 2700 Calories a day. The daily need of an average woman varies from 1800 to 2200 Calories. The daily calorie needs are about 1600 for sedentary women and some older adults; 2000 for sedentary men and most older adults; 2200 for most children, teenage girls, and active women; 2800 for teenage boys, active men, and some very active women; and above 3000 for very active men. The average value of calorie intake is usually taken to be 2000 Calories per day. The daily calorie needs of a person can be determined by multiplying the body weight in pounds (which is 2.205 times the body weight in kg) by 11 for a sedentary person, 13 for a moderately active person, 15 for a moderate exerciser or physical laborer, and 18 for an extremely active exerciser or physical laborer. The extra calories a body consumes are usually stored as fat, which serves as the spare energy of the body for use when the energy intake of the body is less than the needed amount. Like other natural fat, 1 kg of human body fat contains about 33.1 MJ of metabolizable energy. Therefore, a starving person (zero energy intake) who uses up 2200 Calories (9211 kJ) a day can meet his daily energy intake requirements by burning only 9211/33,100 0.28 kg of body fat. So it is no surprise that people are known to survive over 100 days without eating. (They still need to drink water, however, to replenish the water lost through the lungs and the skin to avoid the dehydration that may occur in just a few 196  Thermodynamics
days.) Although the desire to get rid of the excess fat in a thin world may be overwhelming at times, starvation diets are not recommended because the body soon starts to consume its own muscle tissue in addition to fat. A healthy diet should involve regular exercise while allowing a reasonable amount of calorie intake. The average metabolizable energy contents of various foods and the energy consumption during various activities are given in Tables 41 and 42. Considering that no two hamburgers are alike, and that no two people walk exactly the same way, there is some uncertainty in these values, as you would expect. Therefore, you may encounter somewhat different values in other books or magazines for the same items. The rates of energy consumption listed in Table 42 during some activities are for a 68kg adult. The energy consumed for smaller or larger adults can be determined using the proportionality of the metabolism rate and the body size. For example, the rate of energy consumption by a 68kg bicyclist is listed in Table 42 to be 639 Calories/h. Then the rate of energy consumption by a 50kg bicyclist is
150 kg2 639 Cal>h 68 kg 470 Cal>h For a 100kg person, it would be 940 Cal/h. The thermodynamic analysis of the human body is rather complicated since it involves mass transfer (during breathing, perspiring, etc.) as well as energy transfer. As such, it should be treated as an open system. However, the energy transfer with mass is difficult to quantify. Therefore, the human body is often modeled as a closed system for simplicity by treating energy transported with mass as just energy transfer. For example, eating is modeled as the transfer of energy into the human body in the amount of the metabolizable energy content of the food. Dieting
Most diets are based on calorie counting; that is, the conservation of energy principle: a person who consumes more calories than his or her body burns TABLE 41

will gain weight whereas a person who consumes less calories than his or her body burns will lose weight. Yet, people who eat whatever they want whenever they want without gaining any weight are living proof that the caloriecounting technique alone does not work in dieting. Obviously there is more to dieting than keeping track of calories. It should be noted that the phrases weight gain and weight loss are misnomers. The correct phrases should be mass gain and mass loss. A man who goes to space loses practically all of his weight but none of his mass. When the topic is food and fitness, weight is understood to mean mass, and weight is expressed in mass units. Researchers on nutrition proposed several theories on dieting. One theory suggests that some people have very "food efficient" bodies. These people need fewer calories than other people do for the same activity, just like a fuelefficient car needing less fuel for traveling a given distance. It is interesting that we want our cars to be fuel efficient but we do not want the same high efficiency for our bodies. One thing that frustrates the dieters is that the body interprets dieting as starvation and starts using the energy reserves of the body more stringently. Shifting from a normal 2000Calorie daily diet to an 800Calorie diet without exercise is observed to lower the basal metabolic rate by 10 to 20 percent. Although the metabolic rate returns to normal once the dieting stops, extended periods of lowcalorie dieting without adequate exercise may result in the loss of considerable muscle tissue together with fat. With less muscle tissue to burn calories, the metabolic rate of the body declines and stays below normal even after a person starts eating normally. As a result, the person regains the weight he or she has lost in the form of fat, plus more. The basal metabolic rate remains about the same in people who exercise while dieting. Regular moderate exercise is part of any healthy dieting program for good reason: it builds or preserves muscle tissue that burns calories much faster than the fat tissue does. It is interesting that aerobic exercise continues burning calories for several hours after the workout, raising the overall metabolic rate considerably. Another theory suggests that people with too many fat cells developed during childhood or adolescence are much more likely to gain weight. Some people believe that the fat content of the bodies is controlled by the setting of a "fat control" mechanism, much like the temperature of a house is controlled by the thermostat setting. Some people put the blame for weight problems simply on the genes. Considering that 80 percent of the children of overweight parents are also overweight, heredity may indeed play an important role in the way a body stores fat. Researchers from the University of Washington and the Rockefeller University have identified a gene, called the RIIbeta, that seems to control the rate of metabolism. The body tries to keep the body fat at a particular level, called the set point, that differs from person to person (Fig. 442). This is done by speeding up the metabolism and thus burning extra calories much faster when a person tends to gain weight and by slowing down the metabolism and thus burning calories at a slower rate when a person tends to lose weight. Therefore, a person who just became slim burns fewer calories than does a person of the same size who has always been slim. Even exercise does not seem to change that. Then to keep the weight off, the newly slim  197 TABLE 42

person should consume no more calories than he or she can burn. Note that in people with high metabolic rates, the body dissipates the extra calories as body heat instead of storing them as fat, and thus there is no violation of the conservation of energy principle. In some people, a genetic flaw is believed to be responsible for the extremely low rates of metabolism. Several studies concluded that losing weight for such people is nearly impossible. That is, obesity is a biological phenomenon. However, even such people will not gain weight unless they eat more than their body can burn. They just must learn to be content with little food to remain slim, and forget about ever having a normal "eating" life. For most people, genetics determine the range of normal weights. A person may end up at the high or low end of that range, depending on eating and exercise habits. This also explains why some genetically identical twins are not so identical when it comes to body weight. Hormone imbalance is also believed to cause excessive weight gain or loss. Based on his experience, the first author of this book has also developed a diet called the "sensible diet." It consists of two simple rules: eat whatever you want whenever you want as much as you want provided that (1) you do not eat unless you are hungry and (2) you stop eating before you get stuffed. In other words, listen to your body and don't impose on it. Don't expect to see this unscientific diet advertised anywhere since there is nothing to be sold and thus no money to be made. Also, it is not as easy as it sounds since food is at the center stage of most leisure activities in social life, and eating and drinking have become synonymous with having a good time. However, it is comforting to know that the human body is quite forgiving of occasional impositions. Being overweight is associated with a long list of health risks from high blood pressure to some forms of cancer, especially for people who have a weightrelated medical condition such as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. Therefore, people often wonder if their weight is in the proper range. Well, the answer to this question is not written in stone, but if you cannot see your toes or you can pinch your love handles more than an inch, you don't need an expert to tell you that you went over your range. On the other hand, some people who are obsessed with the weight issue try to lose more weight even though they are actually underweight. Therefore, it is useful to have a scientific criterion to determine physical fitness. The range of healthy weight for adults is usually expressed in terms of the body mass index (BMI), defined, in SI units, as
BMI H 2 1m2 2 W 1kg2 with 19 BMI 6 19 BMI 25 BMI 7 25 underweight healthy weight overweight

Analysis (a) We take the human body as our system and treat it as a closed system whose energy content remains unchanged during the process. Then the conservation of energy principle requires that the energy input into the body must be equal to the energy output. The net energy input in this case is the metabolizable energy content of the food eaten. It is determined from Table 41 to be FIGURE 443 A typical lunch discussed in Example 414.

EXAMPLE 415 Losing Weight by Switching to FatFree Chips The fake fat olestra passes through the body undigested, and thus adds zero calorie to the diet. Although foods cooked with olestra taste pretty good, they may cause abdominal discomfort and the longterm effects are unknown. A 1oz (28.3g) serving of regular potato chips has 10 g of fat and 150 Calories, whereas 1 oz of the socalled fatfree chips fried in olestra has only 75 Calories. Consider a person who eats 1 oz of regular potato chips every day at lunch without gaining or losing any weight. Determine how much weight this person will lose in one year if he or she switches to fatfree chips (Fig. 444). FIGURE 444 Schematic for Example 415. 200  Thermodynamics

SUMMARY
Work is the energy transferred as a force acts on a system through a distance. The most common form of mechanical work is the boundary work, which is the work associated with the expansion and compression of substances. On a PV diagram, the area under the process curve represents the boundary work for a quasiequilibrium process. Various forms of boundary work are expressed as follows:

The amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of a unit mass of a substance by one degree is called the specific heat at constant volume cv for a constantvolume process and the specific heat at constant pressure cp for a constantpressure process. They are defined as cv a 0u b 0T v and cp a 0h b 0T p  201 where R is the gas constant. The specific heat ratio k is defined as k cp cv For incompressible substances (liquids and solids), both the constantpressure and constantvolume specific heats are identical and denoted by c: cp

A bicycle front caliper brake is removed and replaced with a levermounted, copper calorimeter friction pad. The calorimeter friction pad rubs on the front tire, heats up, brings the bicycle to a stop, and verifies the first law of thermodynamics.
