Practice Midterm 1 Solution: Please e-mail Aritoki Suzuki ([email protected]) for questions. 1 Diesel Engine in P V A B C D T H L T Q out Q Figure 1: Diesel Engine a) Which point has highest/lowest temperature? As you can see on Figure 1, Point B is on the isotherm curve associated with T H . Point D is on the isotherm curve of T L . b) Find pressure and volume at B , C , and D using P A , V A , V H , V L and con- stants R We will solve this in order B D C . From P-V diagram, P B = P A (1) P B V B = nRT B (2) Replace T B = T L , P B = P A , and n = 1 P A V B = RT L (3) 1
