1 1. 6-6C Yes. Because the temperature of the oven remains constant no matter how much heat is transferred to the potatoes. 2. 6-28 A coal-burning power plant produces 300 MW of power. The amount of coal consumed during a one- day period and the rate of air flowing through the furnace are to be determined. Assumptions 1 The power plant operates steadily. 2 The kinetic and potential energy changes are zero. Properties The heating value of the coal is given to be 28,000 kJ/kg.
