Question: a rigid tank of 500 liters that initially contains air...

Question details

A rigid tank of 500 liters that initially contains air at ambient conditions, 100 kPa and 15 °C, connected to a pressurized air line at 12 MPa and 15 °C with a valve. A valve on the tank is opened and tank fills with more air until it reaches to some pressure P2 through an adiabatic filling process then the valve is closed again. Then the tank is allowed to cool down to a room temperature, where the final temperature and pressure are 15 °C and 5 MPa, respectively. Treat air as an ideal gas with In summary, process 1 to 2: valve is open, adiabatic filling process process 2 to 3: valve is closed, tank reaches to its final state i Determine the intermediate pressure P2 (pressure just after the filling process) i Determine the heat transfer from the tank to the surroundings i Determine the total entropy generation for the process
