temperature and work done

| January 30, 2015

A piston–cylinder device initially contains 1.2 kg of air at 700 kPa and 200°C. At this state, the piston is touching on a pair of stops. The mass of the piston is such that 600- kPa pressure is required to move it. A valve at the bottom of the tank is opened, and air is withdrawn from the cylinder. The valve is closed when the volume of the cylinder decreases to 80 percent of the initial volume. If it is estimated that 40 kJ of heat is lost from the cylinder, determine (a) the final temperature of the air in the cylinder, (b) the amount of mass that has escaped from the cylinder, and (c) the work done. Use constant specific heats at the average temperature.
