Mechanical - Engineering Thermodynamics - Basic Concepts And Definitions

1.A turbine operating under steady flow conditions receives steam at the following state: Pressure 13.8bar; Specific volume 0.143 Internal energy 2590 KJ/Kg; Velocity 30m/s. The state of the steam leaving the turbine is: Pressure 0.35bar; Specific Volume 4.37 Internal energy 2360KJ/Kg; Velocity 90m/s. Heat is lost to the surroundings at the rate of 0.25KJ/s. If the rate of steam flow is 0.38Kg/. What is the power developed by the turbine.  2.Derive the steady flow energy equation and reduce it for a turbine, pump, nozzle and a heat exchanger.  3.      0.25kg of air at a pressure of 1 bar occupies a volume of 0.3 . If this air expands isothermally to a volume of 0.9 . Find

i.                                                       The initial temperature

ii.                                                     Final temperature

iii.                                                  External work done

iv.                                                  Heat absorbed by the air

Change in internal energy. Assume R=0.29 KJ/Kg K.  1.5kg of certain gas at a pressure of 8 bar and 20°C occupies the volume of 0.5 . It expands adiabatically to a pressure of 0.9 bar and volume 0.73 . Determine the work done during the process. Gas constant, ratio of specific heat, values of two specific heats, change in internal energy and change in enthalpy.  5.                 A cylinder contains 1 of gas at 100kpa and 100°C, the gas is polytropically compressed to a volume of 0.25 . The final pressure is 100kpa. Determine

a.                                         Mass of the gas

b.                                        The   value   of   index   ‘n’   for   compression
