cylinder
device contains 0.02 m^3 of steam at 300kPa
and 200C. Steam is now compressed in a
reversible manner to a pressure of 1.2
MPa
.
Determine the work done on the steam
during this process.

300 kPa

200

Assumptions

1
The kinetic and potential energy changes are
negligible.

2
The cylinder is well
-
insulated and thus heat
transfer is negligible.

3
The thermal energy stored in the cylinder
itself is negligible.

4
The process is stated to be reversible.

Analysis

If the process is both reversible and Adiabatic,
then the entropy is constant. S1=S2

T_1 = 200 [C]

V_sys

= 0.02 [m^3]

P_2
= 1200 [

S_2=S_1

Analysis

We take the contents of the cylinder as the
system. This is a closed system since no mass
enters or leaves. The energy balance for this
adiabatic closed system can be expressed as

Type into EES

W_b_in
=
m_sys
*(u_2
-
u_1)

To determine the work, we need:

m, u1, u2

Mass = volume*density

Select paste

(
Steam_IAPWS,T

)

Since we are using the same fluid again and
again we can define a string variable

String Variables

EES supports both numerical and string
variables. String variable are identified by a \$
as
the last
character in the variable name, e.g.,
Fluid\$. String constants are enclosed in single
quote marks
.

Define the string Fluid\$ as
'
Steam_IAPWS

Fluid
\$='
Steam_IAPWS

Steam_IAPWS

The note on
pg

187 of the EES manual states

Steam_IAPWS

implements high accuracy
thermodynamic properties of water substance
with the
1995 Formulation for the
Thermodynamic Properties of Ordinary Water
Substance
for General
and Scientific Use,
issued by The International Association for the

In EES type

u_1
= INTENERGY(
Fluid\$,P
=P_1,T=T_1)

rho_1 = density(
Fluid\$,P
=P_1,T=T_1)

s_1 = entropy(Fluid\$,P=P_1,T=T_1)

u_2 = INTENERGY(Fluid\$,P=P_2,s=s_2)

T_2_isen = temperature(Fluid\$,P=P_2,s=s_2)

Create a table

Since we are
calulating

W as a function of P2,
we need to create a table with P2 and W as
the variables.

First, comment out the original P2 definition

"P_2 = 1200 [
kPa
]”

Next set the units for P2
