340 Water initially at 200 kPa and 300C is contained in a piston-cylinder device
fitted with stops. The water is allowed to cool at constant pressure until it exists
as a saturated vapor and the piston rests on the stops. Then the water continues
to cool until the pressure is 100 kPa. On the T-v diagrams sketch, with respect to
the saturation lines, the process curves passing through both the initial,
intermediate, and final states of the water. Label the T, P and v values for end
states on the process curves. Find the overall change in internal energy between

partition. One side of the tank contains an ideal gas at 9278C. The other side is
evacuated and has a volume twice the size of the part containing the gas. The

399 During a hot summer day when the air temperature is 35C and the relative
humidity is 70 percent, you buy a supposedly cold canned drink from a store.
The store owner claims that the temperature of the drink is below 108C. Yet the
drink does not feel so cold and you are sceptical since
you notice no condensation forming outside the can. Can the store owner be
telling the truth?

3104 The combustion in a gasoline engine may be approximated by a constant

volume heat addition process. There exists the airfuel mixture in the cylinder
before the combustion and the combustion gases after it, and both may be
approximated as air, an ideal gas. In a gasoline engine, the cylinder conditions
are 1.2 MPa and 450C before the combustion and 1750C after it. Determine the
