ME 3322 — Thermodynamics Name: Unit: 2 Level: 2 ID: 0036.1 Date: A rigid container is divided in half by a partition as shown in the figure below. The right side of the container is initially evacuated. The left side contains air at p 1 = 5 bar, T 1 = 500 K, and V 1 = 0.2 m 3 . The partition is removed and the air expands to fill the entire chamber. At some time after the air becomes motionless, the

Unformatted text preview: pressure is measured to be 1.3 bar. Find the corresponding temperature and the total heat transfer that has occurred. Assume ideal gas behavior with constant specific heats. The gas constant for air is R = 0.287 kJ/(kgK) and the ratio of specific heats is k = 1.4. partition vacuum air Answer: 260 K, 120.1 kJ...
