Example
 System contains 2lbm water vapor at
300oF & 20 ft3. The system is
compressed isothermally to 9.05 ft3;
the work of compression is – 90.8
Btu. In the next process, the system
is heated isometrically to 120psi.
Kinetic and potential energy effects
are negligible. Find the heat
transfers in the two processes.
Example
 A gas undergoes three processes in
series returning to its initial state,
called a cycle.
 1  2 compression from 10 psi to 50psi.
Initial volume is 4 ft3. The process is described
by p = C.
 2  3 Isometric process; P1 = P3.
 3  1 Isobaric process.
 Find net work of the cycle.
Example
 Piston/cylinder assembly contains
1.4kg saturated water at 200oC.
Heat is transferred to the system until
only saturated vapor present, and the
