A car air conditioning system removes heat energy from the cab of the car by using the high temperature cab air to vaporize R-134a through an "evaporator". An evaporator is a heat exchanger. Suppose air flows into the heat exchanger at a temperature of 100 °F and flows out at a temperature of 70 °F. The R—134a flows into the heat exchanger with a quality of 30% and a temperature of 50 °F. It flows out 'of the heat exchanger as a saturated vapor. Assume the heat exchanger is adiabatic, is constant pressure, and had negligible changes in kinetic and potential energies. A) How much heat energy, on a Btu / lbw,“r basis, does the air reject to the R-134a? (5 pts) B) How much heat energy, on a Btu / lb,n,R_1g,4a basis, does the R—134a absorb from the air? (5 pts) C) If the heat transfer rate between the two fluids within the heat exchanger is 260,000 Btu/hr, what is the mass flow rate of air (lbm/s)? Note: if you cannot determine an answer for Part A, assume it is 10 Btu/lbm (incorrect). (5 pts) D) What is the mass flow rate (lbm/s) of R—134a through the heat exchanger? Note: If you cannot determine an answer for Part B, assume it is SO Btu/lbm (incorrect).

A building owner directly heats a building with electric resistance heat (you may view this as a heat pump with COP = 1.0 or heater with efficiency = 1.0; both viewpoints lead to the same result). The electric resistance heating system delivers 100,000 Btu/h in order to maintain the indoor temperature at 80 °F. Assume the cost of electricity is S 0.10 / kWh. A. How much money in dollars will the electricity cost if the heater operates for 24 hours?(7 pts) B. The owner changes to a reversible heat pump that extracts heat energy from the outside air at 15 °F. What will be the electricity bill in dollars for the new heat pump for 24 hours of operation? (10 pts) C.

An engineer proposes the following process: R-134a occupies a frictionless piston-cylinder device at T1: —— 16 °C and P1 = 0.200 MPa. The piston keeps a constant pressure on the R-134a while energy in the form of 231 kJ/kg of heat is transferred to the refrigerant from a cold space reservoir until the refrigerant reaches T2 = 10 °C. The combined system of piston-cylinder device and cold space are well—insulated, and the cold space is at 17 °C. A. Compute the entropy change of the refrigerant (5 pts) B. Compute the entropy change of the cold space (5 pts) C. Compute the combined entropy change for both the refrigerant and cold space (5 pts) 1 D.
