Here the common problem on Work Done by Ideal Gas Topic. Please try to solve the problem!
A rigid tank contains air at 500 kPa and 150°C. As a result of heat transfer to the surroundings, the temperature and pressure inside the tank drop to 65°C and 400 kPa, respectively. Determine the boundary work done during this process.
A frictionless piston–cylinder device contains 20 atm of steam at 320oF. Heat is now transferred to the steam until the temperature reaches 400oF. If the piston is not attached to a shaft and its mass is constant, determine the work done by the steam during this process.
A piston–cylinder device initially contains 0.4 m3 of air at 100 kPa and 80°C. The air is now compressed to 0.1 m3 in such a way that the temperature inside the cylinder remains constant. Determine the work done during this process.
During actual expansion and compression processes of gases, pressure and volume are often related by PVn = C, where n and C are constants. It is called polytropic process. Determine the work done by the process!
Two frictionless piston–cylinder has same volume at 150 cc. One of them has 2 times larger radius the the other one. If you want to use the cylinder to make a high speed motorcycle, which one you prefer? Image the rate of cycle of those cylinder are equal.
