The compression ratio of an Otto cycle
The compression ratio of an Otto cycle, as shown in Figure 22.13, is VA/VB = 8.00. At the beginning A of the compression process, 500 cm3 of gas is at 100 kPa and 20.0°C. At the beginning of the adiabatic expansion the temperature is TC = 750°C. Model the working fluid as an ideal gas with Eint = nCVT = 2.50nRT and y = 1.40.
(a) Fill in the table below to follow the states of the gas:
