A 2-L liquid at 20°C is mixed with 3 L of another liquid at the same temperature and pressure in an adiabatic container, forming a homogeneous liquid solution. Someone claims that the temperature of the mixture rose to 22°C after mixing. Another person refutes the claim, saying that this would be a violation of the first law of thermodynamics. Who do you think is right?

#### What are the micro structural changes

What are the micro structural changes that occur in a metal during strain-hardening and annealing? In these processes, how are the yield strength and ductility affected?

#### Determine the magnitude and location of max absolute value

For the beam loading, (a) draw the shear and bending-moment diagrams, (b) determine the magnitude and location of the maximum absolute value of the bending moment.

#### What is friction of k and how does it work into the reaction

A 400 lb crate is on a 20 degree incline. If a 120 lb horizontal force (P), pushes on the crate (upwards), determine the normal and frictional forces acting on the crate. Take friction of surface = 0.3 and friction of k = 0.2?

#### What power is required to overcome the skin friction drag

Fluid mechanics ch.9: A supertanker has length, breath, and draught (fully loaded) dimensions of 325m, 48m, and19m, respectively. In open seas the tanker normally operates at a speed of 115 kt (1 kt=0.515m/s).

#### What flow rate of fresh water (in m3/s) must they use to red

mg/L of salt. The new owners propose to flush the pond into their discharge pipe leading to the Atlantic Ocean, which has a salt concentration above 30,000 mg/L.

#### Determine the work done in the compression process

Methane is compressed in a piston-cylinder device from initial pressure of 110 kPa and an initial temperature of 25 oC to a final pressure of 1,00 MPa. The compression process is polytropic with n = 1 .10.

#### Calculate the final stable discharge pressure after the pump

Given a variable speed centrifugal pump initially pumping 32,000 pounds mass per hour (lbm/hr) at a discharge pressure of 35 pounds per square inch, gauge (psig), calculate the final, stable discharge pressure after the pump speed is raised by 50%. S..

#### What would be the concentration of pollutant leaving lagoon

A lagoon with volume 1200 m3 has been receiving a steady flow of a conservative waste at a rate of 100 m3/day for a long enough time to assume that steady-state conditions apply.

#### Determine the components of the reaction at point c

The object ABC consists of two slender rods welded together at point B. Rod AB has a mass of 1 kg and bar BC has a mass of 2 kg. Knowing the magnitude of the angular velocity of ABC is 10 rad/s when thetha is zero.

#### Calculate the loss of pressure which will occur in pipeline

An 180 m long 100 mm diameter compressed air pipeline is to be run from a stationary compressor to an air-track drill which requires a flow of 780 l/sec. The pipeline contains 2 large radius bends (R=2d) ,and 4 half closed gate valves.

#### Determine the speed of the car when s starting from rest

The 2 Mg car is being towed by a winch. If the winch exerts a force of T=105s on the cable, where 14m is the displacement of the car in meters, determine the speed of the car when s , starting from rest. Neglect rolling resistance of the car.

#### What is the stationing of the pt on the same highway

A crest vertical vurve and a horizontal curve on the same highway have the same design speed. The equal-tangent vertical curve connects a +3% initial grade with a +1% final grade and has a PVC at 101+78 and a PVT at 106+72
