Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics


Note : Attempt all questions.

 1. Attempt any two parts of the following :

(a) Fifty (50) kmol per hour of air is compressed from Pj = 1.2 bar to P2 = 6.0 bar in a steady flow compressor. Delivered mechanical power is 98.8 kW. Temperature and velocities are:

T1= 300 K T2 = 520 K

U2 = 10ms_1 U2 = 3.5 ms-1

Estimate the rate of heat transfer from the compressor. Assume for air that Cp = 7/2R and that enthalpy is impendent of pressure.

(b) In a steady-state flow process 1 mol S-1 of air at 600 K and 1 atm is continuously mixed with 2 mol S-1 of air at 450 K and 1 atm. The product stream is at 400 K and 1 atm. Determining the rate of heat transfer and the rate of entropy generation for the process. Assume that air is an ideal gas with Cp = 7/ 2 R. That the surroundings are at 300 K and that kinetic and potential energy charges are negligible.
