First Law Closed System Applications

Contents

5.1 Introduction

In this chapter, we present a series of detailed engineering analyses of the application of the first law of thermodynamics to closed systems. This material demonstrates good thermodynamic problem solving technique through a variety of worked examples. In the first three examples that follow, the numbered steps in the solution are the same as the steps shown in Figure 4.21. As we continue with the examples and the reader ...
