Unformatted text preview: development of an ideal gas where now p 2 is constrained such that p 2 = U − Nmgz 2m . Problem 4-6: remember that for the entire cycle the entropy of the working substance does not change. Problem 4-20: It is simpler to calculate the efficiency in terms of the compression ratio and the expansion ratio (V 1 / V 3 ) instead of the cutoff ration. Do this instead....
