## Complete system: Refrigerator

Refrigerator pushes energy out of a cold space into a warmer space (room)
Refrigerant flows
in a loop through
4 devices

## Properties, Processes and Cycles

Phases: Solid, Liquid and Vapor (gas)
State: a specific condition expressed by a unique set of property values
like P, T and density .
Two independent properties are needed to specify a state
Intensive properties are independent of mass (P, T, )
Extensive properties depend on mass (Mass, Volume, Energy)

## Process: A change of a substance beginning at state 1 to a final state 2

through a continuous variation of the state.
Example: Heat a cup of cold water to be warm water
Example: Compress air in a cylinder to a smaller volume (bike pump)

## Process path or type: A specific succession of states is usually given a

name that relates to the condition under which this happens. This is given
by the way the device behaves as a process equation or device equation.
Example: The heating of water in a cup takes place at atmospheric
pressure so it is called an isobaric process, pressure is constant.
Example: Heating of air in a constant volume container is called an
isochoric process, volume is constant.
Example: Air is compressed in a piston cylinder while it is maintained
at a constant temperature called an isothermal process.
Example: Air is compressed in a well insulated piston cylinder so it
does not have any heating or cooling called an adiabatic process.
The type of process is often dictated by the device behavior and could
also be called a device equation.

## Properties, Processes and Cycles, Continued

Cycle: A process path that ends in the initial state. It can be a complex
process or a combination of several simple processes.
Example: Water circulating in a steam power plant
Example: Refrigerant (like R-134a, R-410A or R-12) circulating in a
refrigerator or air-conditioner.
Example: Air going through 4 sequential processes in a piston cylinder
similar to what happens in a car engine. This is repeated in time.
Cycles do not (net) change the working substance which keeps looping in
space (flow) or in time. However during the cycle the outside world
exchanges energy with the working substance at different conditions
during the cycle so the net effect is an energy conversion process.

UNITS

SI or English:
SI: mass (kg), length (m), time (s), force (N)
F = ma has units

F = mg has units

## Mole: A fixed number of particles (No = 6.022*1023 particles per mol)

distinguish between gram mole (mol) and kilomole (kmol).
m=nM

## Specific Volume and Density

Specific volume: Volume per unit mass (v)
v = V/m

## Density: Mass per unit volume ()

= m/V limit for small volume

## Typical numbers SI:

Liquid water: v 0.001 m3/kg and 1000 kg/m3
Atmospheric air: v 1 m3/kg and 1 kg/m3
See Tables for a few
typical substances.
SI: A3, A4, A5
Eng.: F2, F3, F4

Pressure
Pressure is force per unit area (normal stress)

= lim

## With uniform P, piston at rest (F = F)

Fext = P Acyl
Units for P
1 Pa = 1 N/m2
1 kPa = 1000 Pa = 1 kN/m2
1 bar = 105 Pa = 100 kPa = 0.1 MPa
1 atm = 101.325 kPa = 14.696 lbf/in2

## Patm = gH = 1 kg/m3 10 m/s2 10 m = 0.1 kPa

We can neglect P in atmospheric air for most cases.

## Energy and Temperature

Energy on the macroscale can be written as
E = Internal + Kinetic + Potential = U + KE + PE
2

= mu + mV + mgZ
velocity and elevation are for the center of mass.
The internal energy u has similar terms on the microscale

## A diatomic molecule, O2, N2 .

2 modes of rotation ( x, z axis)
1 mode of vibration (in y axis)

## u = uext molecule + utranslation + uint molecule

Term 1: potential energy from intermolecular forces fct. of distance
strong (solid, liquid) weak for a gas (distance is large)
Term 2: molecular kinetic energy
Term 3: depends on structure of molecule

## A H2O molecule, 3 modes of vibration,

3 modes of rotation (not shown)

## uint molecule = upotential + urotation + uvibration + uatoms

Each mode of energy possesses kT of energy in average, k is
Boltzmans constant. Translation always has 3 modes (x, y, z).
14

Temperature
Temperature is a measure of hotness which is a sensible level of average energy in
atoms and molecules and photons. Energy (frequency) has a distribution that is
characteristic for a single temperature. Recall the average energy per energy mode
(degree freedom) is kT. In practice we use a thermometer to measure T which rely on
some other property like v or , an ohmic resistance (thermistor) or a voltage from a bimetal junction (thermocouple) all sensitive to T.

## The Tables for Water

Example 2.1
Determine the phase for each of the following water states using table B.1 and indicate
the relative position in the P-v, T-v and P-T diagrams.
a. 120oC, 500 kPa
b. 120oC, 0.5 m3/kg

Solution

____

_____

a. Enter B.1.1: T = 120oC: Psat = 198.5 kPa < P = 500 kPa so compressed liquid.
Enter B.1.2: P = 500 kPa: Tsat = 151.86oC > T = 120oC

so subcooled liquid

24

## The Two Phase States

Consider a mixture of some liquid in equilibrium
with some vapor. For the combination we can
write:
V = Vf + Vg = mf vf + mgvg
m = mf + mg
Average specific volume
mf
mg
v = V/m = m vf + m vg
v = (1 x) vf + x vg
Quality x mg / m (mass fraction: 0 x 1)
Defining vfg = vg vf we can also write
v = vf + x vfg
v is the mass fraction weighted average of vf and vg
x = mass fraction of vapor, 1 x = mass fraction of liquid
25

## The Superheated Vapor States

Example 2.3
Determine the phase for each of the following states using the table in Appendix B and
indicate the relative position in the P-v, T-v and P-T diagrams.
a. Ammonia 30oC, 1000 kPa
b. R-134a 200 kPa, 0.125 m3/kg

Solution

____________________

_________

a. Enter B.2.1: T = 30oC: Psat = 1167 kPa since P < Psat it is superheated vapor.
If entry with 1000 kPa: Tsat 25oC and we see it is superheated about 5oC.

26

## A different scaling can be used

Pv=RT
PV=mRT=nRT
Here n is the number of moles and M is the molecular mass.

n=m/M
From ideal gas law: 1 mol occupies same V at a given (P, T) regardless of which substance it is.
Compare a mass at state 1 with same mass at a state 2:

mR=

P2V2 P1V1
=
T2
T1

Differentiate the ideal gas law with time for constant state (P, T ) to get:

.
.
. _
P V = m R T = n RT

(2.1

27

Example 2.6

28

## Ideal Gas Law

When do you have an ideal gas?
For very large v, so molecular distances are large (very small force between molecules)
To get a sense look at a T-v diagram for water.
If T is higher you can allow smaller vs and still have an ideal gas.

29

## The Compressibility Factor

The deviation from the ideal gas law can be expressed by a factor Z so

P v = Z RT
For an ideal gas Z = 1 and for states approaching liquid Z becomes very small. For very high pressures Z can
actually be higher than 1. A chart for nitrogen gives a general shape of a compressibility chart.

30

Equations of State
The P-v-T surface is approximated in an equation of state. Several of these are extensions of the ideal gas law
as

P=

RT
a
2
v b v + cbv + db2

## Here a and b are scaled to the critical properties

a = ao Pc x2 ; b = bo x ;

x = RTc/Pc

c and d are model constants shown in Tabel. D.1 including a correction with the accentric factor,

## Work at a Moving Boundary of a Compressible Substance

To evaluate:

P = function of V
1W2

= Function(1, 2, path)

## For example from figure

dV < 0

so

1W 2

is negative

Magnitudes:
1W2 A < 1W2 B < 1W2 C

## Work in a Polytropic Process

Example 3.6
An ideal gas in a piston cylinder starts out with 200 kPa, 0.04 m3. Let us look at 4
different possible processes and find the work for each case.

Comment:

36

## The Internal Energy

Main characteristic:
u = uext molecule + utranslation + uint molecule
uint molecule = Potential + Rotation + Vibration + Atoms
uext molecule is sensitive to molecular distances and all parts are sensitive to T.
For liquid and solid phases this first part is significant (small distances) and it
diminishes for the vapor states going to zero for ideal gas states.
Information is in the B section tables for substances as fct(T, P).
For a two phase mixture of liquid and vapor
U = Uliq + Uvap = mliquf + mvapug
u = U/m = (mliq/m) uf + (mvap/m) ug
u = (1 x) uf + x ug
u = uf + x ufg

37

## The Internal Energy

Example 3.8
Determine the missing property (P, T, v, x) for water at each of the following states:
a. T = 300oC, u = 2780 kJ/kg ;
b. P = 200 kPa, u = 2000 kJ/kg

Solution __________________________________________________
a) Table B.1.1 at 300oC: u > ug = 2563.0 kJ/kg, so superheated vapor,
x is undefined,
Table B.1.3 between 1600 and 1800 kPa at 300oC:
1600 kPa, 300oC: u = 2781.03 kJ/kg; v = 0.15862 m3/kg
1800 kPa, 300oC: u = 2776.83 kJ/kg; v = 0.14021 m3/kg
linear interpolation:
2780 2781.03
P = 1600 + 200
= 1600 + 200 0.24524
2776.83 2781.03
= 1648 kPa
v = 0.15862 + (0.14021 0.15862) 0.24524 = 0.1542 m3/kg

38

## The Internal Energy

Example 3.8 continued
Determine the missing property (P, T, v, x) for water at each of the following states:
a. T = 300oC, u = 2780 kJ/kg ;
b. P = 200 kPa, u = 2000 kJ/kg

Solution __________________________________________________
b) Table B.1.2 at 2000 kPa:
uf = 906.4 < u < ug = 2600.3 kJ/kg two-phase
u = 2000 = uf + x uf g = 906.4 + x 1693.8
x = 0.6456
v = vf + x vfg = 0.001 177 + 0.6456 0.098 45
E

= 0.064 74 m3/kg

39

The Enthalpy
Example: The constant P process
Recall the work for a constant pressure process
1W2

P dV

= P dV = P (V2 V1)

## Assume changes in kinetic and potential energies are zero, the

energy equation gives the heat transfer as
1Q2

## = m (u2 u1) + 1W2 = m (u2 u1) + P (V2 V1)

= m (u2 u1) + P m (v2 v1)
= m [(u2 + P2v2) (u1 + P1v1)]

Definition of enthalpy
H U + PV ;

h u + Pv

## Enthalpy has same units as u [kJ/kg], and for a two-phase state

h = (1 x) hf + x hg = hf + x hfg
as the mass fraction [1 x and x] averaged property (same as for v, u).
Comment: Any combination of thermodynamic properties is another
property. Enthalpy is used because it appears often.

40

The Enthalpy
Example 3.12
A piston cylinder has 0.1 m3 with 0.5 kg steam at 400 kPa. Heat is added to reach a final
temperature of 300oC while the pressure is constant. Find the heat transfer and work.

Solution ________________________________________
Control volume all the steam, a control mass.
Process:

P = C.

## State 1 (P1, v1 = V1/m): From Table B.1.2 we get

v1 = V1/m = (0.1/0.5) m3/kg = 0.2 m3/kg = vf + x1 vfg
0.2 0.001084
= 0.4311
0.4614
h1 = hf + x1 hfg = 604.74 + 0.4311 2133.8 = 1524.7 kJ/kg

## State 2 (P2, T2): B.2.2 gives

v2 = 0.6548 m3/kg,

h2 = 3066.8 kJ/kg

41

The Enthalpy
Example 3.12 continued
Work term from area in (P-v) diagram
1W2

## Heat transfer from energy equation

1Q2 = m (u2 u1) + 1W2 = m [(u2 + P2v2) (u1 + P1v1)]
= m (h2 h1) = 0.5 kg (3066.8 1524.7) kJ/kg = 771.1 kJ

Comment: We could have found (u1, u2) and not used the enthalpies, same result.

42

## The Specific Heats

Specific heats
Previous cases (KE = 0 and PE = 0 ) give for an incremental process per unit mass:
dv = 0

w = 0

so

q = du

dP = 0

w = P dv

so

q = dh

We want to express this in terms of a property we can measure: T. Due to the above
processes we define the specific heats as:
u
Cv = T ;
v

h
CP = T
P

## Thermodynamic properties, a function of the state. They simplify to be fct(T) only, as an

approximation, in the single phase regions: solid, liquid and ideal gas.
du
Cv dT ;

dh
CP dT

No phase change

Then
du = Cv dT

and

u2 u1 = Cv dT Cv (T2 T1)

dh = CP dT

and

h2 h1 = CP dT CP (T2 T1)

43

## The Specific Heats: Solids and Liquids

Specific heats for solids and liquids
Matter in these phases are dense and nearly incompressible so
v = constant and v is small
Then
dh = du + d(Pv) = du + P dv + v dP du + v dP
so
h2 h1 = u2 u1 + v dP = u2 u1 + v (P2 P1)
Cv (T2 T1) + v (P2 P1)
If pressures are moderate then the last term can be neglected thus changes in u and h are
the same and the two specific heats are the same.
C = Cv = CP are listed for some solids and liquids in Tables A.3, A.4, F.2 and F.3
Liquids in [kJ/kg-K]:
Solids in [kJ/kg-K]:

water (4.18)
ice (2.04)

## fuels CxHy (2 - 2.5) metals (0.15 1)

granite (0.9)
metals (0.4 typ.)

If temperature varies significantly or great accuracy is required then a model for the
variation of C = Cv with temperature is required and integral must be done
u2 u1 = Cv dT
44

## The Specific Heats: Ideal Gases

Specific heats for ideal gases
Large intermolecular distance gives small potential energy between molecules so only the
internal (like rotation, vibration) molecular energy terms for u are present.
u = uext molecule + utranslation + uint molecule utranslation + uint molecule = u(T)
Pv = RT
so
h = u + Pv = u + RT = h(T)
du
Cv0 = dT ;

## Units for Cv0, CP0 and R: kJ/kg-K or Btu/lbm-R

The zero subscript indicates ideal gas, any gas when P 0 (v ) is an ideal gas.
45

## Specific heat with temperature

Monatomic gases Ar, He, ... cannot
rotate or vibrate so specific heat is
constant. Only translation active so
specific heat also low.
The complex molecules have more
modes of internal energies possible.
See Appendix C for more details.
Notice CP0/R is dimensionless

46

## The Specific Heat Function of Temperature

Example 3.13
Calculate the change of enthalpy as oxygen is heated from 300 K to 1500 K. Assume
ideal gas behavior.

Table A.5:

## h2 h1 = CP0 (T2 T1) = 0.922 kJ/kg-K (1500 300) K = 1106.4 kJ/kg

The result goes from most accurate (A.8) to least accurate (A.5).
Notice how the slope of the cord is close to CP0(Tavg = 900 K)
1267 kJ/kg
slope = (h2 h1) / (T2 T1) = 1200 K = 1.056 kJ/kg-K
CP0 900 K = 0.88 0.0001 0.9 + 0.54 0.92 0.33 0.93

2. For a given q change ds is smaller for high T
3. For a reversible process we find heat transfer

The Entropy
Entropy changes in reversible processes.
From the definition of the entropy there are two processes
for which we can evaluate the integral without further
developments.
q
ds = rev = 0
T

q = 0

so

s = constant

## This is called an isentropic process.

Reversible isothermal process:

## The Carnot Cycle in a T-s diagram

Entropy changes in the Carnot Cycle.

T-S diagram

## The Carnot cycle consists of 2 adiabatic and 2 isothermal

processes so the cycle looks like a rectangle in a T-s
diagram as shown. Notice how the heat transfer is the area
below the process curve as in the heat engine
1q2

= TH (s2 s1) = qH

3q4

= TL (s4 s3) = qL

and
The two isentropic processes (rev. and adiabatic) give
s2 = s3

and

s4 = s 1

## so the entropy increase in 1-2 equals the decrease in the

3 4 process. The net work equals the net heat transfer so
the cycle efficiency is
wnet qH qL area 1-2-3-4-1
= q = q
= area 1-2-b-a-1
H

The reversed cycle is a refrigerator or heat pump and it has
opposite changes in entropy and all heat transfers.

## The Entropy Change in Evaporation

Entropy changes in reversible processes.
Consider a constant pressure process of boiling
saturated liquid to saturated vapor from state 1 to state 2
in the diagram. From the energy equation
1q2

= u2 u1 + 1w2 = h2 h1 = hfg

Constant P process

## The entropy change is

2 q
1q2 hfg

s2 s1 = sfg = T rev = T = T

## relating the entropy of evaporation sfg to the enthalpy of

evaporation hfg. This is a consistency requirement for
the tables of thermodynamic properties.

sfg =

## Entropy Change for a Solid or Liquid

For a solid or liquid we have the behavior for an incompressible substance:
v constant;

v also small;

du = C dT

du P
du
C
ds = T + T dv T = T dT
If specific heat is constant we can integrate
T2
2 C

s2 s1 = T dT = C ln T

Since v is constant u and s are functions of temperature only. Thus in an isentropic
process the temperature does not change, like pumping a liquid to higher pressure.
Example 6.3
Liquid water is heated from 20oC to 90oC. Find the change in entropy using constant
specific heat and by using the steam tables.

## Entropy Change for an Ideal Gas

Now use the two Gibbs relations for an ideal gas
Ideal gas:

Entropy increases with T, increases with v, but decreases with P
Model for specific heat (recall Cp0 = Cv0 + R) needed to evaluate the integrals

The expressions are alternatives and consistent. Use Cp0 = Cv0 + R and ideal gas law to
mathematically transform from one to the other equation.

Cv0(T) = Cp0(T) RT

## Entropy Change Using Different Models

Example 6.4
Find the change in specific entropy of oxygen when state changes from 300 K, 200 kPa
to 1500 K, 150 kPa.

s1 = sT2 sT1

R ln P = 8.0649 6.4168 0.2598 ln 200 = 1.7228 kJ/kg-K

The next best evaluation is using the equation from Table A.6 to get

## = [0.88 ln 0.0001 + 2 0.542 3 0.33 3 ] =0.3 R ln

Constant specific heat evaluation becomes

s2 s1 = Cp0 ln T R ln P = 0.922 ln 300 0.2598 ln 200 = 1.5586 kJ/kg-K

This last evaluation is too low since Cp0 is taken at 300 K and it increases with T so in
Example 3.13 we found the average should be like Cp0 = 1.06 kJ/kg-K.

## Process Equation Using Entropy

Process: Isentropic, s = constant.
A simple reversible adiabatic compression or expansion is an isentropic process. From
the previous expressions for changes in s we can get relations between P, v and T. A set
of explicit relations are obtained using constant specific heat.
Constant specific heat model:
T2
P2

0 = s2 s1 = Cp0 ln T R ln P = Cv0 ln T + R ln v

First one gives:

## ln (P2 / P1) = (Cp0/R) ln(T2 / T1) = ln[ (T2 / T1)Cp0 / R ]

Cp0 / R

P2 = P1 [T2 / T1]

## Second one gives:

Cv0 / R

v2 = v1 [T1 / T2]

k/(k 1)

= P1 [T2 / T1]

k1

= v1 [T1 / T2]

These relations are known as the power relations and are valid for an isentropic process
in an ideal gas with constant specific heats. If one of the ratios is known in an isentropic
compression or expansion (typically the P or v ratio) the other ratios can be found.
The pressure to volume relation can be rewritten to recognize
P vk = constant
as a polytropic process with polytropic exponent n = k. The different processes are:

## The polytropic processes:

P vn = constant

Isobaric:

n = 0, P = constant

Isentropic:

n = k, s = constant

Isothermal:

n = 1, T = constant

Isochoric:

n = , v = constant

## Polytropic Process in P-v and T-s diagrams

The polytropic processes:

P vn = constant

Isobaric:

n = 0, P = constant

Isentropic:
