20.58: a) For constant-volume processes for an ideal gas, the result of Example 20.10 may be used; the entropy changes are ). ln( and ) ln( d a V b c V T T nC T T nC b) The total entropy change for one cycle is the sum of the entropy changes found in part (a); the other processes in the cycle are adiabatic, with Q = 0 and . 0 = S The total is then . ln ln ln = + = d a a c V d a V b c V T T T T nC T T nC T T

Unformatted text preview: S From the derivation of Eq. (20.6), , and 1 1 d γ c a γ b T r T T r T--= = and so the argument of the logarithm in the expression for the net entropy change is 1 identically, and the net entropy change is zero. c) The system is not isolated, and a zero change of entropy for an irreversible system is certainly possible....

    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.

    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.
