Homework Statement


A pump, operating at 10 W, is used to raise the pressure of a stream of water at 2.5 mol/s from 1 bar to 2 bar. At steady state, if the water temperature should remain constant at 25oC, how much heat exchange between the pump and its surroundings is required? Note that 1 bar = 105 Pa and C liq,water = 4.18 J g-1 K -1

Homework Equations


PV=NRT

The Attempt at a Solution


I tried to set up two equations. The first one is (1)(V)=NR(373+25) and the second is (2)(V)= NR(373+25)
and I dunno find out the heat exchange since there are some unknown data( Volume? Mole?)

The solution to this problem has nothing to do with the ideal gas law. This is a problem in application of the open system (control volume) version of the first law of thermodynamics.
