CHEMICAL ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS COURSE NO.: CHEG5301 STUDENT: ___________________ COURSE: Thermodynamics INSTRUCTOR: Prof. Anderson SUBJECT: Problem Set 05 DUE: Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2008 1. A salesperson reports that a steam turbine delivers 3800 hp. The steam enters the turbine at 100 psia, 500 ° F and leaves the turbine at a pressure of 2 psia. The rate of steam flow is 30,000 lb m /hr. (a) How do you evaluate this claim? (b) Suppose the steam flow rate was 34,000 lb m /hr; does that change your evaluation? 2. Three identical 5-kg blocks of metal are available. Each has a constant heat capacity of 0.3 kJ/kg-K. Initially, they are at temperatures of 200, 300, and 400K. (a) If no net heat or work interactions are allowed between the blocks and the environment, what is the maximum temperature that one can reach in any one of the blocks? (b) Under similar restraints as in (a), what is the minimum temperature that one could attain? 3. A well-insulated (adiabatic) chamber consists of two parts which are separated by an extremely thin partition. The first chamber contains carbon dioxide, 0.5 lit/gmol at 420K.

    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.
