A hyperthermic (feverish) male, with a body mass of 104 kg, has a mean body temperature of 107F. He is to
be cooled to 98.6F by placing him in a water bath, which is initially at 77F. Calculate what is the minimum
volume of water required to achieve this result. The specific heat capacity of a human body is 3.5 kJ/(kg·K). The
specific heat capacity for water is 4186 J/(kg·K). You must first find an appropriate formula, before substituting
the applicable numbers.
A 7.70-kg steel ball at 18.7°C is dropped from a height of 12.7 m into an insulated container with 4.50 L of water at 10.1°C. If no water splashes, what is the final temperature of the water and steel? The specific heat of steel and water is 450 J/(kg·K) and 4186 J/(kg·K) respectively.
A monatomic ideal gas at 27.0°C undergoes a constant volume process from A to B and a constant-pressure process from B to C.
where P1 = 2.70, P2 = 5.40, V1 = 2.70, and V2 = 5.40.
Find the total work done on the gas during these two processes.
2. The condensing pressure for a Rankine engine is 1 bar. Calculate the work net in KW and thermal
efficiency of the cycle when the steam at the beginning of expansion is at 50 bar and (a) saturated,
(b) 350 OC, and (c) 640 OC. Note: 1 bar is equal to 100 Kpa
1. Steam is generated at 4.1 Mpa and 440 OC and condensation occurs at 0.105 Mpa. For a Rankine
cycle operating between this limits, determine (a) heat supplied, KJ/kg, (b) heat rejection, KJ/kg,
(c) the Work net, KJ/kg, (d) thermal efficiency, and (e) what mass flow rate is required for a net
output of 30,000 KW? Kg/s
