## Answer to relevant Questions

A process involves 1.0 kg of steam condensing to water at 100 oC. (a) The change in entropy of the steam (water) is (1) positive, (2) zero, (3) negative. Why? (b) What is the change in entropy of the steam (water)? In the winter, heat from a house with an inside temperature of 18 oC leaks out at a rate of 2.0 x 104 J. The out-side temperature is 0 oC. (a) What is the change in entropy per second of the house? (b) What is the total ...If an engine does 200 J of net work and exhausts 800 J of heat per cycle, what is its thermal efficiency? An ideal gas goes through a thermodynamic process in which 500 J of work is done on the gas and the gas loses 300 J of heat. What is the change in internal energy of the gas? A Carnot engine has an efficiency of 30% and takes in heat from a high-temperature reservoir at 178 oC. What is the Celsius temperature of the engine’s low-temperature reservoir?Post your question
