ME 326-Homework Assignment #5 Due: 28 Sept 2011 Topic: 1 st Law Text: SEH&B Chapter 4 Problem #1: A rigid tank contains a partition the divides the tank into two sections, each having a volume of 2.7 ft 3 . The left side contains 4 lb m of water at a pressure of 25 psia, the right side contains 0.1 lb m of water at 25 psia. The partition is removed and the contents are allowed to mix. Heat transfer occurs with the surroundings until the entire contents of the tank reaches an equilibrium temperature of 300 °F. For this process determine: a) the initial temperature of the left and right sections (°F), b) the final pressure in the tank (psia), c) write an expression for the heat transfer that occurs with the surroundings involving the mass and intensive properties of the system, d) calculate the amount of heat transfer with surroundings (BTU), indicating whether the heat transfer is in or out of the system. Problem #2: A frictionless piston-cylinder apparatus contains 6 kg of air at 50 °C and occupies 1.2 m 3 as shown in the figure below (state 1). Heat is added until the pressure reaches 1.5 MPa, at which point the piston just lifts off the stops (state 2).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
