##### Reference no: EM131011952

1. (a) Prove that no 2-temperature refrigerator operating between reservoirs at hotter and colder temperatures Tand Thas a greater coefficient of performance than a Carnot refrigerator. Use diagrams of the type introduced in the chapter.

(b) Find the minimum amount of electrical energy needed to create 0.50 kg of ice from water at 0 °C in a household freezer that rejects heat to a room at 20 °C.

2. Show that a heat pump with a coefficient of performance COPgreater than a heat pump that operates on a Carnot cycle would violate Clausius' statement of the second law.

#### Final temperature of the air in the chamber

The walls of a vacuum chamber are punctured so that air (γ = 1.4) can flow in. What is the final temperature of the air in the chamber? Assume the temperature of the atmosph

#### Internal energy function for a van der waals gas

The internal energy function for a van der Waals gas with constant cV is U(T, v) = n (cV T - a/v), where v is the specific volume. Find the change in temperature Tf - T0 tha

#### Determining the compression ratio

Find the final temperature when air is compressed adiabatically from an initial temperature of 293 K (20 °C): (a) When the compression ratio Vf /V0 is 1/10 (as in gasoline eng

#### Pressure doubling of the volume

A cyclic equilibrium process in n moles of an ideal gas with cV = 2.5R is formed of three sub-processes: a → b is a constant pressure doubling of the volume; b → c is at const
