Problem 26P

Evaluating Work

Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas within a piston-cylinder assembly undergoes an expansion from a state where p1 = 20 lbf/in.2, V1 = 0.5 ft3 to a state where p2 = 5 lbf/in.2, V2 = 2.5 ft3. The relationship between pressure and volume during the process is p = A + BV, where A and B are constants.

(a) For the CO2, evaluate the work, in ft · lbf and Btu.

(b) Evaluate A, in lbf/in.2, and B, in (lbf/in.2)/ft3.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

Part a

We are required to calculate the work done for the Carbon Dioxide gas.

Given data:

20 lbf/in2

0.5 ft3

5 lbf/in2

2.5 ft3

Step 2 of 2
