    Chapter 5 ENTROPY The first law of thermodynamics deals with the property energy and the conservation of energy. The second law introduced in the previous chapter, leads to the definition of a new property called entropy. Entropy is defined in terms of a calculus operation, and no direct physical picture of it can be given. In this chapter, Clausius inequality, which forms the basis for the definition of entropy will be discussed first. It will be followed by the discussion of entropy changes that take place during various processes for different working fluids. Finally, the reversible steady-flow work and the isentropic efficiencies of various engineering devices such as turbine and compressors will be discussed. 5.1 The Clausius Inequality Consider two heat engines operating between two reservoirs kept at temperature TH and T as shown in the Figure 5.1. Of the two heat engines, one is reversible and the other is irreversible.

    Analysis Prob 5.15 : System Process Known To find Diagram Analysis This problem cannot be solved by simple application of first law of thermodynamics. Because there is nothing to tell us whether the fluid is expanding from A to B or being compressed from B to A. However, since the duct is insulated the inference is that there is no heat transfer to or from the environment and therefore there is no change of entropy in the environment. But in any real process change of entropy of the system plus the surroundings must be positive. In otherwords ASAB > 0 Thus SA > SB and the flow is from B to A. Even though entropy cannot be measured directly it can still be used to find the sense of flow in a well insulated duct given two salient states as above.

    24. 25 26 27 28 29 30 During the isentropic process of 1.36 kg/s of air, the temperature increases from 4.440C to 115.60C. For a non-flow process and for a steady flow process find a) Change in internal energy b) Work done c) Change in enthalpy d) Change in entropy and e) Heat transfer Air at 5 bar, IOOOC, expands reversibly in a piston-cylinder arrangement. It expands to 2 bar in an isothermal process. Calculate (a) heat transfer per unit mass of air (b) change in specific internal energy (c) change in specific entropy 1.3 One kg of air at 1 bar, 200C, is compressed according to the law pv constant until the pressure is 5 bar. Calculate the change in entropy and sketch the process on a T-S diagram indicating the area representing the heat flow. 1 kg of air at Ibar, 250C, changes its state to 6 bar and a volume of 1 m . Calculate the change of entropy and sketch the initial and final state points on the p-v and T-S fields. 0.5 m ethane (C2H4) at 7 bar, 2600C expand isentropically in a cylinder behind a piston to 1 bar, 1000C. Calculate the workdone in expansion assuming ethane as perfect gas. The 1.35 same mass is now recompressed back to 7 bar according to the law pv constant. Calculate the final temperature and the heat transfer. Calculate also the change in entropy and sketch both process on the p-v and T-S fields. ethane. Take cp for A mass m of water at Tl is mixed with equal mass of water at T 2 at the same pressure in an insulated mixing chamber. Show that the entropy change of the Universe is given as Consider a closed system consisting of air as working fluid in a piston cylinder arrangement as shown in the Figure. The weight placed on the piston is such that the air occupies a volume of 1.5 litre when there exist thermodynamic equilibrium between the system and its surroundings. The corresponding pressure and temperature are 2 bar, 300C. Heat is added until the pressure
