ENGR 225 Spring 2014 Homework #3 due by recitation week of 2/3 1. A piston-cylinder device initially contains 0.07 m3 of nitrogen gas at 130 kPa and 120°C. The nitrogen is now expanded polytropically to a state of 100 kPa and 100°C. Determine the boundary work done during this process. Answer: 1.86 kJ 2. A mass of 5 kg of saturated water vapor at 300 kPa is heated at constant pressure until the temperature reaches 200°C. Calculate the work done by the water during this process. Answer: 165.9 kJ 3. Carbon dioxide contained in a piston-cylinder device is compressed from 0.3 to 0.1 m 3 . During the process, the pressure and volume are related b P= a / v 2 , where a =8 kPa-m 6 . Calculate the work done on the carbon dioxide during this process. Is this work out or work

Initially, three-quarters of the mass is in the liquid phase. An electric resistor placed in the tank is connected to a 110 V source, and a current of 8 A flows through the resistor when the switch is turned on. Determine how long it will take to vaporize all the liquid in the tank. Also, show the process on a T-v diagram with respect to saturation lines. Answer: 60.2 min. 5. Saturated water vapor at 200°C is isothermally condensed to a saturated liquid in a piston-cylinder device. Calculate the heat transfer and work done during this process, in kJ/kg. Answers: 1940 kJ/kg and 196 kJ/kg....

    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.
