Question: 20 pts imagine that you are compressing a piston full...

Question details

(20 pts) Imagine that you are compressing a piston full of steam (vapor), where the specific volume (v, in m3/kg) depends on the pressure P as follows (at T 498 K): P(v - B) RT with B =-3.55 x 10-6 m3/kg, where p has units of Pascal. How much work is required to compress the piston from V- 100 m3 to V 80 m3 if you have 92.6 kg of steam in the piston? Assume the temperature stays constant at T-498 K
