Unformatted text preview: PHYS 153 Homework 6A Problem 1 The figure below shows a Carnot heat engine driving a Carnot refrigerator. (a) Determine Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4. (b) Is Q3 greater than, less than, or equal to Q1? (c) Do these two devices, when operated together in this way, violate the second law? Explain. PHYS 153 Homework 6A Problem 2 A heat engine uses a diatomic gas that follows the pV cycle in the figure below. (a) Determine the pressure, volume, and temperature at point 1. (b) Determine AUth, l'VS, and Q for each of the three processes. Put your results in a table for easy reading. (c) How much work does this engine do per cycle and what is its thermal efficiency? V (\2 P03 PHYS 153 Homework 6A Problem 3 A 0.0500 kg cube of ice at an initial temperature of —15 °C is placed in 0.600 kg of water at T = 45.0 °C in an insulated container of negligible mass. (a) Calculate the final temperature of the water once the ice has melted. (b) Calculate the Change in entropy of the system. PHYS 153 Homework 6A Problem 4 A heat engine with 0.20 11101 of a monatomic ideal gas initially fills a 2000 c1113 cylinder at 600 K. The gas goes through the following closed cycle: 0 Isothermal expansion to 4000 c1113. 0 Isochoric cooling to 300 K. s o Isothermal compression to 2000 c111: . o Isochoric heating to 600 K. How much work does this engine do per cycle and what is its thermal efficiency? PHYS 153 Homework 6A Problem 5 The figure below shows the Diesel cycle. It is similar to the Otto cycle, but there are two important differences. F irst, the fuel is not admitted until the air is fully compressed at point 2. Because of the high temperature at the end of an adiabatic compression, the fuel begins to burn spontaneously. (There are no spark plugs in a diesel engine!) Second, combustion takes place more slowly, with fuel continuing to be injected. This makes the ignition stage a constant-pressure process. The cycle shown, for one cylinder of a. diesel engine, has a displacement VnmX — Vmin of 1000 cm3 and a compression ratio 'r = Vnmx/Vmin = 21. These are typical values for a diesel truck. The engine operates with intake air (of = 1.40) at 25 °C and 1.0 atm pressure. The quantity of fuel injected into the cylinder has a heat of combustion of 1000 J. (a) Find 1), V, and T at each of the four corners of the cycle. Display your results in a table. (b) What is the net work done by the cylinder during on full cycle? (c) What is the thermal efficiency of this engine? (d) What is the power output in kW and horsepower (1 hp 2 746 W ) of an eight-cylinder diesel engine running at 2400 rpm? germ) Ga 0: a on Mfg ...
