After the passage of sufficiently long period of time, the temperature and pressure are found to be uniform throughout the chamber. If the filled compartment initially contains an ideal gas of constant heat capacity at 1 MPa and 500 K, what is the final temperature and pressure in the chamber? If the filled compartment initially contains steam at 1 MPa and 500 K, what is the final temperature and pressure in the chamber? What is the change in entropy for both cases? 3. A block of metal of total heat capacity nC P is initially at a temperature of T 1 , which is higher than the ambient temperature T 2 . Determine the maximum amount of work that can be obtained on cooling this block to ambient temperature. Calculate the work for the case where nC P is 2 cal/K, the initial temperature, T 1 , is 100 ° C and ambient temperature, T 2 , is ° C...
