7-88 An insulated cylinder initially contains air at a specified state. A resistance heater inside the cylinder is turned on, and air is heated for 15 min at constant pressure. The entropy change of air during this process is to be determined for the cases of constant and variable specific heats. Assumptions At specified conditions, air can be treated as an ideal gas. Properties The gas constant of air is R = 0.287 kJ/kg.K (Table A-1). Analysis The mass of the air and the electrical work done during this process are ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( )( ) kJ 180 s 60 15 kJ/s 0.2 kg 0.4325 K 290 K /kg m kPa 0.287 m 0.3 kPa 120 in e, in e, 3 3 1 1 1 = = D = = = = t W W RT P m V The energy balance for this stationary closed system can be expressed as ) ( ) ( 1 2 1 2 in e, out b, in e, energies etc. potential, kinetic, internal, in Change system mass and work, heat, by nsfer energy tra Net out in T T c h h m W U W W E E E p - @ - = D = - D = - 43 42 1 43 42 1 since D U + W b = D H during a constant pressure quasi-equilibrium process.

The partition is removed, and the gas fills the entire tank. The total entropy change during this process is to be
