Description
ME235 EXAM II, NOVEMBER 30, 2010 C. BORGNAKKE and D. SIEGEL 1. [30%] In a remote location you run a heat engine to provide the power to run a refrigerator. The input to the heat engine is at 800 K and the low T is 400 K, it has an actual efficiency equal to ½ of the corresponding Carnot unit. The refrigerator hasLa T = -10C and T H T ambient 10, with a COP that is 1/3 of the corresponding carnot unit. Assume the ambient is at 25C and that a cooling capcity of 2 kW is needed. a. Find the rate of heat input to the heat engine b. Find the entropy generation rate in the heat engine c. Find the entropy generation rate in the refrigerator 2. [30%] Air at 100 kPa, 20C is compressed in a piston cylinder to a volume 9 times smaller in a polytropic process where n = 1.25. If heat transfer goes out it goes into the ambient at 20C and if the heat transfer comes in it comes from a 250C energy reservoir. a) Find the final T and P of the air b) Find the specific work and specific heat transfer c) Find the entropy generation per unit mass of air 3. [40%] When large concrete pipes for storm drains are made they are placed in a sealed perfectly insulated constant P flexible bag. Assume the bag contains 1000 kg concrete at 30C which releases 1.2 W/kg due to chemical reaction. This chemical heat release is like a work term in and not heat transfer. The bag also contains 25 kg of saturated water vapor at 100 kPa. The pipe cures for 6 hr and not all the steam condenses. a) Find the final T (assumed uniform) and quality x of the water. b) Find the total entropy generation. EXAM II, SOLUTION NOVEMBER 30, 2010 C.
