16.050 Thermal Energy Recitation #1 – Fall 2002 Problem 1: A piston/cylinder arrangement contains 1 kg of air. The piston is spring loaded and initially rests on some stops (with the spring uncompressed). A pressure of 300 kPa will just float the piston ( i.e, the spring is still uncompressed). At a volume of 1.5 m 3 and a pressure of 500 kPa the piston is balanced ( i.e , the weight of the piston and the spring force are balanced). The initial state of the air is 100 kPa with a volume of 0.5 m 3 . Heat is now added until a pressure of 400 kPa is reached. Assume air behaves as a perfect gas. a) Find the final volume. b) Find the final temperature. c) Find the work and heat transfer in the process. d) Plot the P-V diagram. Page 1 of 1

Unformatted text preview: combustor, and two turbines. The first turbine, the high pressure turbine, provides the power for the compressor through a coupling shaft. The second turbine provides the net power output of the system. You are given the following system specifications: T t,2 = 300 K (compressor inlet total temperature) T t4 = 1500 K (high pressure turbine max inlet total temperature) T t6 = 500 K (low pressure turbine exit total temperature) r c = 20 (compressor stagnation pressure ratio) m ± = 100 kg/s You may assume that air behaves as a perfect gas with cp=1000 J/kgK in the compressor and cp=1100 J/kgK in the turbines. You may also assume that the compressor is adiabatic and reversible. Find the power output of the low pressure turbine. Page 2 of 2...
