Engine Turbochargers and Intercoolers?. The power output of an automobile engine is directly proportional to the mass of air that can be forced into the volume of the engine’s cylinders to react chemically with gasoline. Many cars have a turbocharger which compresses the air before it enters the engine, giving a greater mass of air per volume. This rapid, essentially adiabatic compression also heats the air. To compress it further, the air then passes through an intercooler in which the air exchanges heat with its surroundings at essentially constant pressure. The air is then drawn into the cylinders. In a typical installation, air is taken into In a typical installation, air is taken into the turbocharger at atmospheric pressure (1.01 × 105 Pa), density ? = 1.23 kg/m3, and temperature 15.0°C. It is compressed adiabatically to 1.45 × 105 Pa. In the intercooler, the air is cooled to the original temperature of 15.0°C at a constant pressure of 1.45 × 105 Pa. (a) Draw a pV-diagram for this sequence of processes. (b) If the volume of one of the engine’s cylinders is 575 cm3, what mass of air exiling from the intercooler will fill the cylinder at 1.45 × 105 Pa? Compared to the power ouput of an engine that takes in air at 1.01 ×105 pa at 15.0°C what percentage increase in power is obtained by using the turbocharger and intercooler? (c) If the intercooier is not used, what mass of air exiting from the turbocharger will fill the cylinder at 1.45 × 105 Pa? Compared to the power output of an engine that takes in air at 1.01 × 105 Pa at 15.0°C, what percentage increase in power is obtained by using the turbocharger alone?

Mass Spectrometry Mass Spectrometry is basically an experimental technique where a molecule is bombarded with high energy electrons, breaking the molecule up into various fragments. The abundance of all of the fragments are then recorded in a graph, represented by a mass spectrum. An example of a Mass spectrum is shown below The molecular weight of the molecule is represented by the symbol...
