its not a homework problem, I was just curious while reading about the textbook chapter on power cycles, since it is desirable to have high temperature input, I was thinking maybe that temperature can be so high that the temperature of the fluid coming out of the turbine might able to reach...

Since we want the fluid to be in liquid state before entering a boiler, and super-heated water can only reach 374°C before entering super-critical state, suppose after the expansion, the temperature at point 3 is still higher...
Thank you, I thought the plant transfer function G_p(s) = output(s) / input(s)? how it is independent? are you saying that it always exists but cannot be calculated without some type of inputs?

An insulated piston-cylinder device contains 5 L of saturated liquid water at a constant pressure of 150 kPa. An electric resistance heater inside the cylinder is now turned on, and 2200 kJ of energy is transferred to the steam. Determine the entropy change of the water...
ohhh I see! so in another words, the internal energy in the inlet is the same as the internal energy inside the bottle? its 4 am here in New York, I might be brain dead, would this problem be different if the inlet is a cylindrical pipe? sorry if I am asking stupid questions
Thank you very much for taking the time to read all that and answering my questions! I got it now.
I am not sure how to find H and U2 without the tables, are you saying using ideal gas equation to find volume and then H=U2+PV? and ΔU= mass*specific heat of air*change in temperature? but we do...

I am lost on equation(4-14), I looked through the textbook but didn't find a derivation.
wow, you are right, I got stuck on trying to write that term base on which temperature is higher and which is lower, thank you very much for the awesome explanation!
it's from here :
isn't distal temperature same as ambient temperature in this case? so I guess if surface is cooling, then we have to take surface temperature minus ambient temperature, if the surface is being heated, then we have to take the ambient temperature minus surface temperature? but...
Homework Statement
I am confused on how it's using the surrounding temperature minus the surface temperature as its the other way around in the Newton's law of cooling, Doing that would change the sign of convection right? I don't see the reason to do that, since if left side is hotter, then...

I am trying to repair my rusty calculus. I don't see how du = dx*dt/dt, I know its chain rule, but I got (du/dx)*(dx/dt) instead of dxdt/dt, if I recall correctly, you cannot treat dt or dx as a variable, so they don't...

if you do 38*25/pi , you would get 302.394 for the exact pitch circle diameter, similarly, exact d2 should be 907.183 mm, is it a typo? or did I miss something?
is it clearly specified in the above two problems? the only difference I noticed is that the first problem is in a single phase ( super-heated), and the second problem is in two phase region. is that why we can assume the second problem's final pressure does not equal initial pressure?

ok, this time I got 18.46 which is very far from unity. but finding Z requires final conditions, and the question ask for final conditions...i feel like its too late to use Z to determine whether not i should use ideal gas equation, since I already have final conditions.

My professor said that temperature and pressure are independent in super-heated region, I searched for independent definition, it says that if two properties are independent, i can vary one while holding one at constant . So its like saying I can increase or decrease pressure while holding...
Thanks a lot. so my initial pressure was correct (using h=u+Pv) ? I hope I am not asking too many questions...I am a bit confused on how temperature and pressure are independent in super-heated region, if you increase the temperature, the vapor pressure will increase since the molecules are...
but in this case, the piston is not connected to anything right?
I got another question,for part b) i keep getting 370.697 for the final T and 21.223 MPa for the final pressure, a little off from the solution. I have a feeling that the solution did not simply interpolate on v, but I failed to...
thank you, because I assumed a piston-cylinder device has a constant pressure from state 1 to state 2, since the piston is free to move. I guess the pressure is not constant then? why is it not constant though?
so in the case of exams where we are not given the T,S diagram, how do we know the...
