Radioactive wastes are temporarily stored in a spherical container, the center of which is buried a distance of 10 m below the earth's air-soil surface. The outside diameter of the container is 2.0 m, and 500 W of heat are released as a result of radloactive decay. If the soll surface temperature is 25*C, what is the outslde surface temperature of the contalner?
An actual vapour compression system comprises following process represents a. 1-2 Compression process b. 2-3 Condens 1 (or heat rejection from the condenser) c. 3-4 Irreversible expansion d. 4-1 Evaporation (or) heat addition to the evaporator Sketch the processes on T-S diagram.
Air is heated from 50 F to 200 F in a rigid container with a heat transfer of 500 Btu. Assume that the air behaves as an ideal gas. Determine the volume of air [ft3] if the initial pressure is 2 atm. Also show the process on a P-v state diagram. Use the following temperature conversion: T[R] = T[F] + 460.
Air is entering a 4200-kW turbine that is operating at its steady state. The mass flow rate is 20 kg/s at 807 C, 5 bar and a velocity of 100 m/s. This air then expands adiabatically, through the turbine and exits at a velocity of 125 m/s. Afterwards the air then enters a diffuser where it decelerates isentropically to a velocity of 15 m/s and a pressure of 1 bar. Using the ideal gas model, determine, (a) pressure and temperature of the air at the turbine exit, in units of bar and Kelvin. (b) Entropy production rate in the turbine in units of kW/k, and (c) draw the process on a T-s Diagram.
