HW 17 1. The Thanapal cycle is proposed as a new ideal gas power generation cycle. It is composed of the four following processes being performed in a piston-cylinder device: a) Isentropic compression to State 2 b) Isochoric heat addition to State 3 c) Isothermal expansion to State 4 d) Isobaric compression back to State 1 The cycle is going to be performed on air beginning at 300 K, 101 kPa, and occupying 1 m 3 of volume. The gas is isentropically compressed to 1 MPa. 201 kJ of heat is added during the isochoric heating. Assuming constant specific heats at room temperature, determine a) The heat transfer in. b) The net work developed. c) The thermal efficiency. d) Fill in the following table: Temperature (K) 300 Temperature (K) Temperature (K) Temperature (K) Temperature (K) Pressure (kPa) 101 Pressure (kPa) 1000 Pressure (kPa) Pressure (kPa) Pressure (kPa) Volume (m 3 ) 1 Volume (m 3 ) Volume (m 3 ) Volume (m 3 ) Volume (m 3 ) State 1 ___ = Constant ___ = Constant s = Constant State 1
