Step 1

Part(a).

Given:

Compression ratio = 9.1

Vd = 2.2L

P1 = 95kPa

T1 = 290K

Qtotal = 4.5kJ

Step 2

Solution:

T1=290K

T2=701.51K

T3=1423.6K

T4=2971.8K

T5=1561.9K help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseQIca45k On substituting the values, - toat 1.125(0.00217) (0.718) (7 - 701.51K) 4.5 1.125k 4 T 1423.6K giventhat Q3.375KJ 3.375kJ mC (T-T;) 3.375 0.00217x1.005 x(7-1423.6) 3 x4.5 3.375kJ 4 Q34= 2.2L 0.0022m3 Now T 2971.8K Again Finding PV_PV T3 4 m T T V. =4:constant pressure T T T 290x (9.1) T290x (9.1) T 290x 2.419= 701.51K 14-1 0.002472-0.0022 2971.8 1423.6 V = 0.0005m2 So QmC, (7-7) Q3s= mC, (T-701.51K) k-1 4 T T V 1.4-1 0.0005 T 2971.8 0.002472 T 2971.8(0.2022)* = 2971.8x0.5276 T 1561.9K fullscreen
