Problem 3.148 T or F.
a) T or F: The change in specific volume from saturated liquid to
saturated vapor (vg - vf) at a specified saturation pressure increases
as the pressure decreases.
T
b) T or F: A two phase liquid-vapor mixture with equal volumes of
saturated liquid and saturated vapor has a quality of 50%.
F
c) T or F: The following assumptions apply for a liquid modeled as
incompressible: the specific volume is constant and the specific
internal energy is a function only of temperature. T
d) T or F: Carbon dioxide (CO2) at 320 K and 55 bar can be modeled
as an ideal gas. ( pr = 0.75
Tr = 1.05
Z = 0.74 )
F
e) T or F: When an ideal gas undergoes a polytropic process with
n=1, the gas temperature remains constant.

Example Problem: (3.139) One kilogram of air in a piston cylinder
assembly undergoes two processes in series from an initial state where
p1_gage = 0.5 MPa, and T1 = 227 deg C.
Process 1: Constant temperature expansion until the volume is twice the
initial volume.
Process 2: Constant volume heating until the pressure is again 0.5 MPa.
Sketch the two processes in series on a p-v diagram. Assuming ideal gas
behavior, determine
a) the pressure at state 2.
b) the temperature at state 3
c) the work and heat transfer for each process.
