ME231C S09 ME231C Engineering Thermodynamics I Name: HW#2 due Friday Jan 30 in class Group: Problem 2.7: A 30-seat turboprop airliner whose mass is 14,000 kg takes off from an airport and eventually achieves its cruising speed of 620 km/h at an altitude of 10,000 m. For g = 9.78 m/s2, determine the change in kinetic energy and the change in gravitational potential energy of the airliner, each in kJ.

Using data from the table, complete the following: a) Determine a value of n such that the data are fit by an equation of the form b) Evaluate analytically the work done on the refrigerant, in Btu, using Eq. 2.17 along with the result of part (a) c) Using graphical or numerical integration of the data, evaluate the work done on the refrigerant, in Btu. d) Compare the different methods for estimating the work used in parts (b) and (c). Why are they estimates?

The only measured data are the tabulated data shown as filled squares in the plot. The smooth curve does not necessarily represent the actual pressure for the corresponding volume. Hence the work evaluated in part (c) is an estimate. Problem 2.44: As shown in Fig. P2.44, the 6-in thick exterior wall of a building has an average thermal conductivity of 0.32 Btu/h · ft · ˚R. At steady state, the temperature of the wall decreases linearly from T1 = 70˚F on the inner surface to T2 on the outer surface. The outside ambient air temperature is T0 = 25˚F and the convective heat transfer coefficient is 5.1 Btu/h · ft2 · ˚R. Determine (a) the temperature T2, in ˚F, and (b) the rate of heat transfer through the wall, in Btu/h per ft2 of surface area. 26 0.5 0.32 / . .°L in ft k Btu h ft R= = = 21 070° T =25°F 5.1 / . .°T F h Btu hr ft R= = ( )Conv 2 0 QCond dTQ kA hA T Tdx= − = −dotnosp dotnosp At steady state ConvQCondQ =dotnosp dotnosp ( )2 1 2 0T TkA hA T TL− − = − a) ( )( )( ) ( )( )( )( ) ( ) 2 0 1 2 2 5.1 / . .° 0.5 25° 0.32 / . .° 70° 30° 5.1 / . .° 0.5 0.32 / . .° Btu h ft R ft F Btu h ft R Fh L T k TT F h L k Btu h ft R ft Btu h ft R +−= = = + + b) 2 1 230 70 °0.32 25.6. .° 0.5 .CondQ T T Btu R Btuq kA L h ft R ft h ft − − = = − = − = dotnospdotnosp Fig. P2.44 ME231C S09 Problem 2.71: The following table gives data, in Btu, for a system undergoing a thermodynamic cycle consisting of four processes in series.
