Carbon Oxide (CO) initially occupying 1.8 m3 at 5.2 bar, 246.85°C undergoes an internally reversible expansion during whichpV1.4 = constant to a final state where the temperature is 36.85°C. Assuming the ideal gas model, determine the entropy change, in Joules/K.


Expert Answer

Step 1

In the problem it is provided that the CO follow the reversible expansion process pv1.4=constant. Since the carbon monoxide is a diatomic gas, the value of adiabatic index for CO is 1.4. Thus, the above process is to be considered as a reversible adiabatic expansion.

Step 2

The expression for change in entropy of t...
