QUESTION ONE : 16 MARKS

A cylinder contains 1 kg of a gas at an initial pressure of 20 bar and a volume of 0.05 m3. The
gas is allowed to expand reversibly according to the law pV2 = constant until the volume is
doubled. The fluid is then cooled reversibly at constant pressure until the original volume is
reached; heat is then supplied reversibly at constant volume until the gas returns to its original
state.

Calculate the net work done by the fluid.

QUESTION TWO : 10 MARKS

One kilogram of water at 300°C undergoes a reversible, adiabatic expansion (isentropic) until it
reaches ambient pressure, 100 kPa, at which point the water has a quality of 90.2%.

What was the initial pressure and how much work is done by the water?

Process: Rev. aiabatic, Q = 0


Energy: m(u2 − u1) = Q + W = W
Entropy: m(s2 − s1) = ∫ dQ/T
Process: Adiabatic Q = 0 and reversible => s2 = s1

State 2: P2 = 100 kPa, x2 = 0.902

ESTION THREE: 12 MARKS

A piston/cylinder contains 2 kg water as saturated liquid at 10 MPa. It expands in an isothermal


process to a pressure of 200 kPa.

Calculate both the heat transfer to the system and the work done by the system.

Isothermal Process: T = C
Energy: m(u2 − u1) = Q + W
Entropy: m(s2 − s1) = ∫ dQ/T =Q/T

at 311oC u2 = 2826 kJ/kg and s2 = 7.9288 kJ/kg K

Q = T m(s2 − s1) = (273.15+311) K∙2 kg∙(7.9288 - 3.3606) kJ/kg K = 5337 kJ

Q + W = m(u2 − u1)
W = -5337 kJ + 2 kg∙(2826 -1393.5) kJ/kg = - 2472 kJ

Heat transfer to the system = 5337 kJ

The work done by the system = 2472 kJ

QUESTION FOUR: 8 MARKS

In a gas turbine unit, the gas flow through the turbine is 15 kg/s and the power developed by the
turbine is 12 000 kW. The enthalpies of gases at the inlet and outlet are 1260 kJ/kg and 400 kJ/kg
respectively, and the velocity of gases at the inlet and outlet are 50 m/s and 110 m/s respectively.

Calculate the rate at which heat is added to the gas.

Q = - 828 kW = heat added to gas


Actually heat removed from gas

QUESTION FIVE : 6 MARKS

A household refrigerator removes heat from the refrigerated space at a rate of 2 kW to maintain
its temperature at -30°C. The freezer operates in a room at 20°C

What is the theoretically smallest input power required to operate this freezer?

Assume a Carnot cycle between T1 = -30°C = 273 – 30 = 243 K and T2 = 273 + 20 = 293 K

This is the theoretical minimum power input. Any actual machine requires a larger input.

QUESTION SIX : 20 MARKS

A power plant operating on a reheat cycle produces steam at 3 MPa, 600oC in the boiler. The
condenser is kept at a pressure is 10 kPa. In the first turbine section the steam expands to 5 bar
and then the outlet from the first turbine is reheated followed by expansion in the second, low
pressure, turbine.

a) Draw the T-s diagram for the process


b) Find the reheat temperature so the second turbine output is saturated vapor.
c) Find the mass flow rate of steam given that 10 MW is removed from the condenser as heat
transfer

QUESTION SEVEN : 10 MARKS

A single stage reciprocating compressor draws in air at atmospheric pressure of 1.01 bar and
delivers it at 9.5 bar. The polytropic index is 1.18 for the compression and expansion. The swept
volume is 1.5 dm3 and the clearance volume is 0.10 dm3. The speed is 500 rev/min.

Determine the following.


a) The volumetric efficiency.
b) The free air delivery.
c) The indicated power.

Volume induced = Va - Vd

Va = Swept volume + clearance volume

dm3
dm3

Volume induced = Va - Vd = 1.6 – 0.668 = 0.932 dm3

FAD per stroke = induced volume = 0.932 dm3 = 0.932 x 10-4 m3


FAD per minute = 0.932 x 10-4 x 500 = 0.466 m3/min
