Strength Of Materials
One kg of air in a piston-cylinder assembly undergoes two processes in series from an initial state where pi = 0.5 MPa, T1 = 227°C:
Process 1-2: Constant-temperature expansion until the volume is twice the initial volume.
Process 2-3: Constant-volume heating until the pressure is again 0.5 MPa.
Assuming ideal gas behavior, determine
(i) the pressure at state 2, in MPa,
(ii) the temperature at state 3, in °C,
the work for each of the processes, each in kJ,
sketch the two processes on the same p-v diagram.
