# Carbon Dioxide is contained in a piston-cylinder assembly and undergoes a cycle made of the fol- lowing processes: • Process 1-2: Constant volume from 1 bar, 300 K to 600 K • Process 2–3: Polytropic expansion with n=k until P3 = P1 • Process 3-1: Isobaric compression (a) Sketch the cycle on p-v and T-v coordinates (b) Determine the work and heat transfer in each process, in kJ/kg (c) Determine the type of cycle that this is. If it is a power cycle, compute the thermal efficiency. Otherwise, compute the coefficient of performance for a heat pump cycle.
