ECOR 2606 - Lab 10 Question 1: File SCO2 .txt contains tabulated NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) data for supercritical carbon dioxide. Column one is the temperature (in K), column two is the pressure (in bar), column three is enthalpy, column four is entropy, column five is the constant volume specific heat (C V ), and column six is the constant pressure specific heat (C P ). The data can be imported into the Matlab environment by using load command: load SCO2.txt Provided that Matlab is able to find the file (it must be in a folder on your path) this will produce a variable called SCO2 and having 161 rows and 6 columns. We are interested primarily in columns one (temperature) and six (C P ). For convenience, create two vectors containing the values in these columns. In theory, the enthalpy change between any two temperatures can be calculated by integrating C P . 2 1 T T p dT C h Use numerical integration to integrate Cp between 300 K (first row of SCO2) and 1100 K (last row of SCO2). Use both trapezoidal integration and Simpson's 1/3 rule. The trapezoidal integration can be

    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.
