A flow of 2 kg/s saturated vapor R410a at 500 kPa is heated at constant pressure
to 60
o
C. The heat is supplied by a heat pump that receives heat from the ambient
at 300 K and work input, shown in Fig. P9.27. Assume everything is reversible
and find the rate of work input.

A reversible steady state device receives a flow of 1 kg/s air at 400 K, 450 kPa
and the air leaves at 600 K, 100 kPa. Heat transfer of 800 kW is added from a
1000 K reservoir, 100 kW rejected at 350 K and some heat transfer takes place at
500 K. Find the heat transferred at 500 K and the rate of work produced.
Solution:
C.V. Device, single inlet and exit flows.
