The refrigerant is cooled to 25 ◦ C. Find the heat transfer 1 Q 2 and work done 1 W 2 . Solution The work done is 1 W 2 = integraldisplay 2 1 pdV At p = 1 . 5 MPa, the temperature for saturated vapor is 59.2 ◦ C. Since T 1 = 100 ◦ C, State 1 is superheated vapor. At T = 25 ◦ C, the pressure for saturated vapor is p 2 sat = 651 . 6 kPa. It is therefore evident that p 2 < 1 . 5 MPa (consider p − v diagram). Therefore, the piston must hit the stops, and State 2 is saturated liquid-vapor or a compressed liquid. 650:351 Thermodynamics Page 1 Midterm Examination The pressure in the R-12 remains constant and equal to 1.5 MPa as the piston descends. As theThe pressure in the R-12 remains constant and equal to 1....
