Mechanical EngineeringQ&A LibraryA chamber is divided equally into two parts by a membrane. One side contains Hydrogen, H2, at a pressure of 200 kPa and temperature of 300 K, and the other side is evacuated (a perfect vacuum). The total chamber volume is 0.005 m3. At time t = 0, the membrane ruptures and the hydrogen expands freely into the evacuated side. The chamber can be considered adiabatic (i.e. perfectly insulated). Find the final values of the temperature and pressure.Question

A chamber is divided equally into two parts by a membrane. One side contains Hydrogen, H_{2}, at a pressure of 200 kPa and temperature of 300 K, and the other side is evacuated (a perfect vacuum). The total chamber volume is 0.005 m^{3}. At time t = 0, the membrane ruptures and the hydrogen expands freely into the evacuated side. The chamber can be considered adiabatic (i.e. perfectly insulated). Find the final values of the temperature and pressure.
