Problem 3.134

As shown in Fig. P3.134, a rigid tank initially contains 3 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) at 500 kPa. The tank is connected by a valve to a pistoncylinder assembly located vertically above, initially containing 0.05 m3 of CO2. Although the valve is closed, a slow leak allows CO2 to flow into the cylinder from the tank until the tank pressure falls to 200 kPa. The weight of the piston and the pressure of the atmosphere maintain a constant pressure of 200 kPa in the cylinder. Owing to heat transfer, the temperature of the CO2 throughout the tank and cylinder stays constant at 290 K. Assuming ideal gas behavior, determine for the CO2 the work and heat transfer, each in kJ.
