e 115 Engineering Thermodynamics Fall 2009 University of California Problem set 18 Due: Monday, October 26 th 1) (10 points) Dry, saturated steam at 0.30 MPa is compressed isothermally until it is a saturated liquid. a) Sketch this process on a P - V diagram, labeling the endpoints 1 and 2. (5 points) b) Calculate the heat transfer that occurred in kJ/kg. (5 points) 2) (10 points) A rigid container contains 10 cm 3 of liquid water and 200 cm 3 of water vapor at a pressure of 0.20 MPa. It is heated until the pressure becomes 12.0 MPa. a) Sketch this process on a P - V diagram, labeling the endpoints 1 and 2. (5 points) b) Calculate the heat that was added in kJ.
