Unformatted text preview: MECH 310 Thermodynamics I November 20, 2006 American University of Beirut, Fall 2006 Handout # Quiz 1 Quiz 1 Problem 1 (50 points) A large rigid vessel of unknown total volume is divided into two compartments by a partition: The first compartment of volume 0.5 m 3 initially contains saturated liquid- vapor mixture of water at 100 ◦ C while the second compartment is evacuated. The water in the first compartment is heated while the partition is fixed (not allowed to move). In what follows, sketch all the processes on a p- v and T- v diagram. saturated liquid-vapor mixture initial state: 0.5 m 3 100 o C evacuated unknown volume heat fixed partition Figure 1: Schematic for problem 1. (a) If at the end of the heating process, the final state of water is saturated liquid, what are the minimum and maximum possible values of the range of mass of the liquid water at the initial state? What is the corresponding range of the volume of liquid water at the initial state?...
