Using EES (or other) software, investigate the effect of varying the cen54261_ch07.qxd 11/18/03 9:58 AM Page 338 338 FUNDAMENTALS OF THERMAL-FLUID SCIENCES polytropic exponent from 1 to 1.4 on the entropy change of the nitrogen. Show the processes on a common P-υ diagram. 7–66E A mass of 15 lbm of helium undergoes a process from an initial state of 50 ft3/lbm and 80°F to a final state of 10 ft3/lbm and 200°F. Determine the entropy change of helium during this process, assuming (a) the process is reversible and (b) the process is irreversible. 7–73 An insulated rigid tank contains 4 kg of argon gas at 450 kPa and 30°C. A valve is now opened, and argon is allowed to escape until the pressure inside drops to 150 kPa. Assuming the argon remaining inside the tank has undergone a reversible, adiabatic process, determine the final mass in the tank. Answer: 2.07 kg 7–67 Air is compressed in a piston-cylinder device from 90 kPa and 20°C to 400 kPa in a reversible isothermal process. Determine (a) th...
