Example (2.55):
A mass of 10 kg undergoes a process during with there is
heat transfer from the mass at a rate of 5 kJ per kg, an elevation decrease
of 50 m, and an increase in velocity from 15 m/s to 30 m/s. The specific
internal energy decreases by 5 kJ/kg and the acceleration of gravity is
constant at 9.7 m/s

. Determine the work for the process, in kJ.

A gas is contained in a vertical piston

cylinder assembly
by a piston weighing 1000 lb

. The
atmosphere exerts a pressure of 14.7 psi on the top of the piston. An
electrical resistor transfers energy to the
gas in the amount of 5 BTU as the elevation
of the piston increases by 2 ft. The piston and
cylinder are poor thermal conductors and
friction can be neglected. Determine the
change in internal energy of the gas, in BTU,
assuming it is the only significant internal
energy change of any component present.

Example (2.70):
A gas is contained in a vertical piston

cylinder assembly by a
piston weighing 1000 lb
f
and having a face area of 12 in
2
. The atmosphere exerts a
pressure of 14.7 psi on the top of the piston. An electrical resistor transfers energy
to the gas in the amount of 5 BTU as the elevation
of the piston increases by 2 ft. The piston and
cylinder are poor thermal conductors and friction
can be neglected. Determine the change in internal
energy of the gas, in BTU, assuming it is the only
significant internal energy change of any component
present

Because of the statement “poor
thermal
conductors”, it can be assumed that
this is an adiabatic process (Q = 0) and we will also assume that the process
occurs as a slow quasi

equilibrium process in which case the kinetic energy
terms will also be small (
Δ
KE = 0). Finally, since the piston floats on the
contained gas, the outside atmospheric pressure maintains a constant
pressure on the cylinder…so this is a constant pressure process (isobaric)
