Question

A container of 1.5 Kg of gas is at a temperature and pressure of 293 K and 1 bar respectively. The gas is adiabatically compressed until its temperature and pressure are 450 K, 4.49 bars. Adiabatic processes are processes with no heat transfer. The properties of this gas are c_{v }= 10.3 KJ/(Kg K) and R = 4.158 KJ/(Kg K). Neglect kinetic and potential energy terms.

- Use the first law to determine the work into the system.
- Calculate the entropy production for this process.
- Is this a reversible process?

Step 1

Given Information :

Mass of gas m = 1.5 kg

Initial temperature T_{1} = 293 K

Initial pressure P_{1} = 1 Bar = 100 kPa

Final temperature T_{2} = 450 K

Final Pressure P_{2} = 4.49 bar = 449 kPa

Assume : The gas is behaving as ideal gas.

Step 2

If kinetic energy and potential energy are neglected, then first law of thermodynamics is as follows.

Step 3

Change in entropy of the...
