CHEMICAL ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS COURSE NO.: CHEG5301 STUDENT: ___________________ COURSE: Thermodynamics INSTRUCTOR: Prof. Anderson SUBJECT: Problem Set 02 DUE: Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2008 1. Using your best engineering know-how, calculate the following specific volumes: (a) Ammonia: 80 ° F at 80% quality (b) Water: 1000 psia at 98% quality (c) Nitrogen: -300 ° F at 40% quality 2. The vertical cylinder-piston contains carbon dioxide at 40 psia and 300 ° F. The volume of the gas is 3 ft 3 . Weights on the top of the piston are removed at such a rate that the gas expands according to the relation 1.2 constant PV = until the final temperature is 200 ° F. Determine the work done during this process. CO2 3. A cylinder is insulated around its side and on one end and is separated initially into two 1 ft 3 compartments by an adiabatic, frictionless piston. One side contains air ( C V = 5/2 R), and the other side contains argon ( C V = 3/2 R), both initially at 70 ° F and 15 psia. The argon side
