A.G.Yazıcıo ğ lu B.Tekin ME 203 –Thermodynamics - I Fall 2010 Section 2 – Homework 2 Solution 1 – A piston-cylinder device initially contains 50 L of liquid water at 25°C and 300 kPa. Heat is added to the water at constant pressure until the entire liquid is vaporized. (a) What is the mass of the water? (b) What is the final temperature? (c) Show the process on a T-v diagram with respect to saturation lines. SOLUTION: @ 25°C, P sat = 3.169 kPa, P > P sat , so it is compressed liquid. Since compressed liquid properties for 300 kPa is not available in Tables, saturated liquid properties @ 25°C will be taken. From table B.1.1, ν = 0.001003 m 3 /kg. (a) kg V m 85 . 49 001003 . 0 1000 / 50 = = = ν (b) At constant pressure, the piston-cylinder device is heated. When all liquid is vaporized, there will be satured water vapor inside the cylinder. From table B.1.2, @ 300 kPa, T final = T sat = 133.55 o C (c) 2 – A 0.5-m 3 rigid tank contains saturated mixture of refrigerant-134a at 200 kPa. If the saturated liquid occupies 10% of the volume, determine the quality and total mass of the refrigerant in the tank.

    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.
