(3) are T 3 = 300°C, and v 3 = 0.2 m 3 / kg. On scanning the superheat tables we find that the closest values lie somewhere between 1.2 MPa and 1.4 MPa, thus we use linear interpolation techniqes to determine the actual pressure P 3 as shown below: Two kilograms of water at 25°C are placed in a piston cylinder device under 3.2 MPa pressure as shown in the diagram (State (1)). Heat is added to the water at constant pressure until the temperature of the fluid reaches 350°C (State (2)). Determine the final volume of the fluid at state (2). In this example since the pressure is known (3.2 MPa) and remains constant throughout the process, we find it convenient to draw a P-v diagram

indicating the process (1) - (2) as follows. As in the previous example, on scanning the superheat tables we find that we need to interpolate between pressure P = 3.0 MPa and P = 3.5 MPa in order to determine the specific volume at the required pressure of 3.2 MPa as follows:

PROBLEM 3 A piston-cylinder device contains a saturated mixture of steam and water having a total mass of 0.5 kg at a pressure of 160 kPa and an initial volume of 100 liters. Heat is then added and the fluid expands at constant pressure until it reaches a saturated vapor state. a) Draw a diagram representing the process showing the initial and final states of the system. b) Sketch this process on a P-v diagram with respect to the saturation lines, critical point, and relevant constant temperature lines, clearly indicating the initial and final states. c) Determine the initial quality and temperature of the fluid mixture prior to heating. [quality x 1 = 0.182, T 1 = 113.3°C] d) Determine the final volume of the steam after heating. [0.546 m 3 (546 liters)]

PROBLEM 4 A pressure cooker allows much faster (and more tender) cooking by maintaining a higher boiling temperature of the water inside. It is well sealed, and steam can only escape through an opening on the lid, on which sits a metal petcock. When the pressure overcomes the weight of the petcock, the steam escapes, maintaining a constant high pressure while the water boils. Assuming that the opening under the petcock has an area of 8 mm 2 , determine : a) the mass of the petcock required in order to maintain an operating pressure of 99 kPa gage. [80.7gm] b) the corresponding temperature of the boiling water. [120.2°C] Note: Assume that the atmospheric pressure is 101 kPa. Draw a free body diagram of the petcock.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
