Answer to Question #112272 in Mechanical Engineering for Oluwaseun Ayoola

Question #112272
A house initially at a temperature 310k during a hot summer day must be cooled to a temperature 294k while the ambient temperature is 310k. Obtain an expression for the minimum workdone required and determine the minimum work also required to cool a room containing the total area of 200 meter square with equivalent mass of 50 kilogram meter square of the living room.
Expert's answer

Mass per meter square of living rrom= 50 kg and total area =200

SO, total mass to be cool= "50\\times200=10000 kg"

for ambient temperature we can say that change in internal energy= 0


or minimum work done by applying first law of thermodynamics we can say that


"dW=0 +mcdT"

"dW= 10000\\times c(310-294)"
