HW 5-B Solution
5-78. A hot water stream is mixed with a cold water stream. For a specified mixture
temperature, the mass flow rate of cold water is to be determined.
Assumptions: 1. Steady operating conditions exist.
2. The mixing chamber is well-ins

HW 4 Solution
4-9. A piston-cylinder device with a set of stops contains steam at a specified state. Now, the
steam is cooled. The compression work for two cases and the final temperature are to be
determined.

Introduction to Heat Transfer
1.1. Basic Modes of Heat Transfer
There are 3 basic modes (i.e., mechanisms) of heat transfer:
conduction, convection, and radiation.
Conduction: Transfer of energy due to molecular interactions of solids
or stationary fluids

HW 7 Solution
7-24 [7-124, 7th ed.]. Air is compressed steadily by a compressor. The air temperature is
maintained constant by heat rejection to the surroundings. The rate of entropy change of air is to
be determined.
Assumptions: 1. This is a steady-
