Question: 10 mols of toluene is compressed isentropically in a steadyflow...

Question details

10 mol/s of toluene is compressed isentropically in a steady-flow process from 1 bar and 300°C to 15 bar. Foolishly, a friend solves this problem assuming an ideal gas at all times and a constant heat capacity, finding a final temperature of 372ºC. But you KNOW the final state is NOT an ideal gas. a.) Use your friend’s guess as a starting point and find the TRUE final temperature. Iterate until your answer changes by less than 1%. b.) What how much work is required for this compression (using the correct temperature)?
