## Charging and Discharging Processes

5-121 A large reservoir supplies steam to a balloon whose initial state is specified. The final temperature in
the balloon and the boundary work are to be determined.
Analysis Noting that the volume changes linearly with the pressure, the final volume and the initial mass
are determined from

P2 150 kPa
V2 = V1 = (50 m 3 ) = 75 m 3
P1 100 kPa

V1 50 m 3
m1 = = = 25.82 kg
v 1 1.9367 m 3 /kg
The final temperature may be determined if we first calculate specific Steam

P2 = 150 kPa 
3 T2 = 202.5°C (Table A-6)

Noting again that the volume changes linearly with the pressure, the boundary work can be determined
from
P1 + P2 (100 + 150)kPa
Wb = (V 2 −V 1 ) = (75 − 50)m 3 = 3125 kJ

5-122 Steam in a supply line is allowed to enter an initially evacuated tank. The temperature of the steam in
the supply line and the flow work are to be determined.
Analysis Flow work of the steam in the supply line is converted to sensible internal energy in the tank.
That is,
hline = u tank Steam 4 MPa

Ptank = 4 MPa 
where u tank = 3189.5 kJ/kg (Table A-6)
Ttank = 550°C 
Now, the properties of steam in the line can be calculated
Initially
Pline = 4 MPa  Tline = 389.5 °C evacuated
 (Table A-6)
hline = 3189.5 kJ/kg  u line = 2901.5 kJ/kg
The flow work per unit mass is the difference between enthalpy and internal energy of the steam in the line
wflow = hline − u line = 3189.5 − 2901.5 = 288 kJ/kg

5-123 A vertical piston-cylinder device contains air at a specified state. Air is allowed to escape from the
cylinder by a valve connected to the cylinder. The final temperature and the boundary work are to be
determined.
Properties The gas constant of air is R = 0.287 kJ/kg.K (Table A-1).
Analysis The initial and final masses in the cylinder are

m1 = = = 0.9121 m 3
RT1 (0.287 kJ/kg.K)(300 + 273 K) Air
0.25 m3
m 2 = 0.25m1 = 0.25(0.9121 kg) = 0.2280 kg 600 kPa Air
Then the final temperature becomes 300°C

PV 2 (600 kPa)(0.05 m 3 )
T2 = = = 458.4 K
m 2 R (0.2280 kg)(0.287 kJ/kg.K)
Noting that pressure remains constant during the process, the boundary work is determined from
Wb = P(V1 −V 2 ) = (600 kPa)(0.25 − 0.05)m 3 = 120 kJ

5-124 Helium flows from a supply line to an initially evacuated tank. The flow work of the helium in the
supply line and the final temperature of the helium in the tank are to be determined.
Properties The properties of helium are R = 2.0769 kJ/kg.K, cp = 5.1926 kJ/kg.K, cv = 3.1156 kJ/kg.K
(Table A-2a).
Analysis The flow work is determined from its definition but
we first determine the specific volume Helium 200 kPa, 120°C
RT (2.0769 kJ/kg.K)(120 + 273 K)
v = line = = 4.0811 m 3 /kg
P (200 kPa)

## wflow = Pv = (200 kPa)(4.0811 m 3 /kg) = 816.2 kJ/kg

Noting that the flow work in the supply line is converted to Initially
sensible internal energy in the tank, the final helium evacuated
temperature in the tank is determined as follows
u tank = hline
hline = c p Tline = (5.1926 kJ/kg.K)(120 + 273 K) = 2040.7 kJ/kg
u - tank = cv Ttank 
→ 2040.7 kJ/kg = (3.1156 kJ/kg.K)Ttank 
→ Ttank = 655.0 K
Alternative Solution: Noting the definition of specific heat ratio, the final temperature in the tank can also
be determined from
Ttank = kTline = 1.667(120 + 273 K) = 655.1 K
which is practically the same result.

5-125 An evacuated bottle is surrounded by atmospheric air. A valve is opened, and air is allowed to fill
the bottle. The amount of heat transfer through the wall of the bottle when thermal and mechanical
equilibrium is established is to be determined.
Assumptions 1 This is an unsteady process since the conditions within the device are changing during the
process, but it can be analyzed as a uniform-flow process since the state of fluid at the inlet remains
constant. 2 Air is an ideal gas with variable specific heats. 3 Kinetic and potential energies are negligible. 4
There are no work interactions involved. 5 The direction of heat transfer is to the air in the bottle (will be
verified).
Properties The gas constant of air is 0.287 kPa.m3/kg.K (Table A-1).
Analysis We take the bottle as the system, which is a control volume since mass crosses the boundary.
Noting that the microscopic energies of flowing and nonflowing fluids are represented by enthalpy h and
internal energy u, respectively, the mass and energy balances for this uniform-flow system can be
expressed as

Substituting, Qin = (0.0096 kg)(206.91 - 290.16) kJ/kg = - 0.8 kJ → Qout = 0.8 kJ
Discussion The negative sign for heat transfer indicates that the assumed direction is wrong. Therefore, we
reverse the direction.

5-142 An insulated piston-cylinder device with a linear spring is applying force to the piston. A valve at
the bottom of the cylinder is opened, and refrigerant is allowed to escape. The amount of refrigerant that
escapes and the final temperature of the refrigerant are to be determined.
Assumptions 1 This is an unsteady process since the conditions within the device are changing during the
process, but it can be analyzed as a uniform-flow process assuming that the state of fluid leaving the device
remains constant. 2 Kinetic and potential energies are negligible.

Final state properties of the refrigerant (h2, u2, and v2) are all functions of final pressure (known) and
temperature (unknown). The solution may be obtained by a trial-error approach by trying different final
state temperatures until Eq. (1) is satisfied. Or solving the above equations simultaneously using an
equation solver with built-in thermodynamic functions such as EES, we obtain
T2 = 96.8°C, me = 22.47 kg, h2 = 336.20 kJ/kg,
u2 = 307.77 kJ/kg, v2 = 0.04739 m3/kg, m2 = 10.55 kg

5-143 Steam flowing in a supply line is allowed to enter into an insulated tank until a specified state is
achieved in the tank. The mass of the steam that has entered and the pressure of the steam in the supply line
are to be determined.
Assumptions 1 This is an unsteady process since the conditions within the device are changing during the
process, but it can be analyzed as a uniform-flow process since the state of fluid entering the tank remains
constant. 2 Kinetic and potential energies are negligible.

Analysis (a) We take the tank as the system, which is a control volume since mass crosses the boundary.
Noting that the microscopic energies of flowing and nonflowing fluids are represented by enthalpy h and

## Qin − Wb,out + mi hi = m2u2 − m1u1 (since ke ≅ pe ≅ 0)

Noting that the pressure remains constant, the boundary work is determined from
W b,out = P (V 2 −V 1 ) = (800 kPa)(2 × 0.1 − 0.1)m 3 = 80 kJ
The final mass and the mass that has entered are

(b) Finally, substituting into energy balance equation
Qin − 80 kJ + (0.082 kg)(3434.7 kJ/kg) = (0.682 kg)(2715.9 kJ/kg) − (0.6 kg)(2004.4 kJ/kg)
