Question: calculate the compression index n for problems 5a through 5e...

Question details

5. Air at a pessure of 10.0 bar is contained in a cylinder behind a piston has an initial volume of 0.05 m3. Calculate the work done by the fluid when it expands reversibly under the following conditions: a) at a constant pressure to final volume of 0.3 m b) according to a linear law to a final volume of 0.2 m2 and a final pressure of 0.9 bar c) according to a law PV-constant to a final volume of 0.4 m3 d) according to a law PV3-constant to a final volume of 0.09 m3; e) according to a law P = ( 2)-(5) to a final volume of 0.4 m3 and a final pressure of 2.0 bar. Find the A and B are constants first from the initial and final conditions.

Calculate the compression index, n, for problems 5a through 5e.
