Then the type of energy transfer can be obtained by using the first law of thermodynamics. FundamentalsThe relation for the first law of thermodynamics is as follows:Here, amount of heat transferred is Q, change in internal energy is and work done by the system is W. Step 1 (a)Write the equation for temperature of state 1.Substitute for , , for and for .Write the equation for temperature of state 2.Substitute for , , for and for . Explanation: The temperature of air at state 1 and state 2 is calculated by using volume of air, pressure of air and mass of air in cylinder. Common mistakes: Use the ideal gas equation for temperature calculation instead of. Hint for next step: Use the first law of thermodynamics and calculate the type of energy transfer.. Step 2 (b)Apply the first law of thermodynamics for air.The internal energy of air will not change due temperature and it will be constant during compression process. Process 1 to 2 is an isothermal process. The internal energy does not change in isothermal process.Therefore, the value of internal energy at state 1 and state 2 will remain same that is .Substitute for .All the compression work is converted into heat, since cylinder is not thermally insulated.Therefore, all heat is rejected into surrounding by mode of conduction. Explanation: The relation between heat and work and the form of energy transfer occurred from state 1 to state 2 is obtained by applying first law of thermodynamics. Answer Part aThe temperature of air in state 2 is . Answer Part bThe form of energy transfer occurred from state 1 to state 2 is heat. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Answer Anonymously Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
