Question: a gas undergoes a process in a pistoncylinder assembly during...

Question details

A gas undergoes a process in a piston-cylinder assembly during which the pressure-specific volume relation is pv1.3- constant. The mass of the gas is 0.4 lb and the following data are known: p 160 lbf/in.2, V 1 ft3, and p2 300 lbf/in.2 During the process, heat transfer from the gas is 2.1 Btu. Kinetic and potential energy effects are negligible. Determine the change in specific internal energy of the gas, in Btu/lb. Au Btu/lb the tolerance is +/-2%
