Solution 3 1 Take C.V. as all the argon in both A and B. Boundary movement work done in cylinder B against constant external pressure of 125 kPa. Argon is an ideal gas, so write out that the mass and temperature at state 1 and 2 are the same PA1VA = P2( V2) => V2 = W2 = ⌡⌠ 1 2 PextdV = Pext(VB2 - VB1) = 112.5 kPa (0.8 - 0.4) m3 = 45 kJ 2 State 1 from B.1.2 (P, x): v1 = vg = 0.8857 m3/kg (also in B.1.3) State 2 from B.1.3 (P, T): v2 = 1.0803 m3/kg Since the mass and the cross sectional area is the same we get h2 = v2/v1 × h1 = 1.0803/0.8857 × 0.1 = 0.122 m Process: P = C so the work integral is W = PdV = P(V2 - V1) = PA (h2 - h1) W = 200 kPa × 0.2 m2 × (0.122 − 0.1) m = 0.88 kJ 3 Ideal gas PV = mRT State 1: T1, P1 ideal gas so P1V1 = mRT1 V1 = mR T1 / P1 = 2 • 0.287 • 293.15/250 = 0.6731 m3 State 2: T2, P2 = P1 and ideal gas so P2V2 = mRT2 V2 = mR T2 / P2 = 2 • 0.287 • 500/250 = 1.148 m3 W 2 = ⌡⌠ PdV = P (V2 - V1) = 250 (1.148 – 0.6731) = 118.7 kJ 4 The setup has a pressure that varies linear with volume going through the initial and the final

W = PdV = AREA = 1 / 2 (P2 + P1)(V2 - V1) = 1 / 2 (P2 + 0)( V2 - 0) = 1 / 2 P2 V2 = 1 / 2 500 0.015 = 3.75 kJ 5 The process is polytropic with exponent n = -1/3.
