Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics 141 Fall 2005 Homework 5 Solutions Problem 1. 1. This problem asks us to show how an isotherm and isobar behave on a Mollier diagram. We must realize that an isobar or isotherm is the derivative of enthalpy with respect to entropy at constant pressure or temperature, respectively. We first want to prove that isobars within the vapor phase have constant slope and constant curvature, starting with the fundamental relationship for enthalpy. Then we try to calculate these partial derivatives explicitly in terms of the quality, to find out whether the partial derivatives depend on quality. Mollier Diagram To begin with, we are asked to prove that 0 0 2 2 P P dS H d dS dH (1) 1

Since the problem asks us to, let us start with the fundamental relationship for enthalpy: vdP TdS dH + = (2) We want things that look like relations (1). So divide (2) by dS, holding P constant: T dS dH P = (3) Since T > 0 always, we have proven the first relation. It remains to prove the second. Let’s substitute in T into the second relation now, so we get: P P dS dT dS H d = 2 2 (4) It appears we’re stuck. If you try using a Maxwell relation, it will not work because T and S are apposed. We need to recognize that we can write P P dT dS dS dT = 1 (5) Now, we can find the term on the right hand side of the equation. Let start again with (1) and divide through by dT, holding P constant: P P dT dS T dT dH = (6) By now you should be able to recognize the term on the left hand side as Cp. Rearranging the result, 0 0 2 2 = = = P P p p P P P dS dT dS H d C T C T dS dT T C dT dS (7) 2

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
