Unformatted text preview: 1 MAE 301: Engineering Thermodynamics Spring 2010 HOMEWORK #4 ( Solutions ) Problem 1. Problem 4.6 from the book. Solution: No work is done during the process 2-3 since the area under process line is zero. Then the work done is equal to the area under the process line 1-2: kJ 300 = ⎟ ⎟ ⎠ ⎞ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ ⎛ ⋅ − + = − + = = 3 3 1 2 2 1 out , m kPa 1 kJ 1 /kg 0.5)m kg)(1.0 (2 2 )kPa 500 (100 ) ( 2 Area v v m P P W b Problem 2.
