Problem 162HP

A piston/cylinder contains pure oxygen at ambient conditions 20°C, 100 kPa. The piston is moved to a volume that is seven times smaller than the initial volume in a polytropic process with exponent n = 1.25. Use the constant heat capacity to find the final pressure and temperature, the specific work, and the specific heat transfer.

Solution 162 HP

Step 1 of 4

We are required to find the final pressure, temperature, the specific work, and the specific heat transfer.
