Unformatted text preview: ME 200: Thermodynamics I Lecture 15: Control Volume Analysis  Mass Conservation H. Finney Summer 2011 2 In this Lecture We will study: Control Volume Analysis Mass Conservation 3 Examples of Open Systems 3 4 Conservation of Mass Mass can neither be created nor destroyed (ignore nuclear reactions). For a closed system (control mass), the system mass remains in one place during a process. m system = constant For an open system (control volume), there is mass flowing so its hard to keep track of individual packets. We therefore designate our system as a region in space, because thats easy to keep track of. 4 5 Conservation of Mass e i cv m m dt dm Inlet, i Exit, e time rate of change of mass contained within the control volume at time t rate of mass flow across inlet i at time t rate of mass flow across exit e at time t e e i i cv m m dt dm mass rate balance 5 6 Mass Flow Rate Amount of mass flowing through a cross...
