SAMPLE SOLUTIONS MAE 301: Engineering Thermodynamics I Spring 2010 Test 2 (15% of final grade) March 11, 2010 Problem 1. (25 points) A tank fitted with an electrical resistor of negligible mass holds 2 kg of nitrogen, initially at 27 ˚C, 100 kPa. Over a period of 10 minutes, electricity is provided to the resistor at a rate of 0.12 kW. During the same period, a heat transfer of magnitude 12.59 kJ occurs from the nitrogen to its surroundings. Assuming ideal gas behavior, determine the nitrogen final temperature and pressure.
