Answer to Question #72721 in Mechanical Engineering for Jeff Kjellberg
A piston cylinder contains gas initially at 3500 kPa with a volume of 0.03 cubic meter. The gas is compressed during a process where pV raise to 1.25 = C to a pressure of 8500 kPa. The heat transfer from the gas is 2.5 kJ. Determine the change in internal energy, neglecting changes in kinetic and potential energies. Graph a PV and TS Plane.
