Question: 837 a piston cylinder device initially contains air at 100...

Question details

8-37 A piston cylinder device initially contains air at 100 kPa and 25°C. Air is now compressed to a final state of 600 kPa and 15OC. The useful work input is 1.2 kJ. Assuming the surroundings are at 100 kPa and 25°C, deter- mine (a) the exergy of the air at the initial and the final states, (b) the minimum work that must be supplied to accomplish this compression process, and (c) the second-law efficiency of this process. Answers: (a) o, 0.171 kJ, (b) 0.171 k, (c) 14.3 percent 2 L of Air P 100 kPa T, = 25°C FIGURE 8 34
