(b) (i)Derive the steady flow energy equating giving basic assumption.

(ii)Explain system and control volume approach for thermodynamics analysis.

(c)  0.25 kg of air at a pressure of 140 kn/m2 occupies 0.15 m3 and from this condition it is compressed to 1.4 MPa according to the law pvlJ5 =constant Determine.

(i) The change of internal energy of air.

(ii) The work done on or by the air.
