Question: consider a closed pistoncylinder device filled with 5kg of a...

Question details

Consider a closed piston-cylinder device filled with 5kg T of a saturated liquid-vapor mixture of water, Initially, half of the mass is in the liquid phase at P 00kPa. The system undergoes two independent processes as follows: 1-2: Heat is transferred to the mixture in a reversible manner while the temperature is held constant until the water is completely vaporized. 2-3: The mixture is compressed isentropically to a pressure of IMPa. a) (5 pts) sketch these two processes with respect to the saturation lines on the T-s diagram provided at the right. Be sure to label relevant isobars and b) G pts) Determine the quality of each state (ie. xi, x, and xu). c) (2 pts) Determine the heat transferred to the steam during process I-2 in [k]. DAN DELVEscovo OAKLAND UNIVERSITY pts) Determine the work done on the steam in process 2-3 in [kl1.
