ID: ___________________________________ Homework Week 7 Due Feb 22 at the begin of class P1: Steam enters a turbine operating at steady state at 6 MPa, 500 °C with a mass flow rate of 400 kg/s. Saturated vapor exits at 8 kPa. Heat transfer from the turbine to its surroundings takes place at a rate of 8 MW at an average surface temperature of 180 °C. Kinetic and potential energy effects are negligible. a) For a control volume enclosing the turbine, determine the power developed and the rate
of exergy destruction each in MW.
b) If the turbine is located in a facility where the ambient temperature is 27 °C, determine
the rate of exergy destruction for an enlarged control volume that includes the turbine and
its immediate surroundings so the heat transfer takes place from the control volume at the
ambient temperature. Explain why the exergy destruction values of parts (a) and (b)
differ.
P2: Estimate the pressure of water vapor at a temperature of 500 °C and a density of 24 kg/m3 using the a) Steam tables.
b) compressibility chart.
c) RedlichKwong equation.
d) van der Waals equation.
e) ideal gas equation of state.
P3: For water the critical properties are: Tc= 647.3 K, pc= 220.9 bar, Zc = (pcvc)/(RTc). Use a computer program (Matlab, Excel, Gnuplot, or others) to plot Tr = 0.25, Tr = 0.5, Tr = 1, Tr = 2, Tr = 4 isotherms for vr = 0.1 to 4 in the p
v diagram based on a) the van der Waals EOS.
b) the RedlichKwong EOS.
Also plot the saturated liquid and saturated vapor lines as taken from the steam tables. What do you observe? P4: Using p
v
T data for saturated water from the steam tables calculate at 50 °C a) hghf
b ) u g u f
c) s g s f
P5: Develop expressions for the specific enthalpy, internal energy, and entropy change [h(v2,T)
h(v1,T), (u(v2,T)
u(v1,T)), (s(v2,T)
s(v1,T))], using the a) Van der Waals equation of state.
b) RedlichKwong equation of state. ...
