Question: a steam in a pistoncylinder assembly undergoes a polytropic process...

Question details

A Steam in a piston-cylinder assembly undergoes a polytropic process, with n-2, from an initial state where P 3.45 MPa, v10.106 m3/kg, u 3171 k]/kg to a final state where u2- 2304 kJ/kg. During the process, there is a heat transfer from the steam of magnitude 361.8 kJ. The mass of steam is 0.544 kg. Neglecting changes in kinetic and potential energy, then determine the work, in kJ as well as the final specific volume in m3/kg.
