Q1. A closed thermodynamic system is one in which
(a) there is no energy or mass transfer across the boundary
(b) there is no mass transfer, but energy transfer exists
(c) there is no energy transfer, but mass transfer exists
(d) both energy and mass transfer take place across the boundary, but the mass transfer is controlled by valves
Q2. Which one of the following thermodynamic processes approximates the steaming of food in a pressure cooker?
Q3. For a simple closed system of constant composition, the difference between the net heat and work interactions is identifiable as the change in
(c) Flow energy
(d) Internal energy
Q4. A closed system undergoes a process 1-2 for which the values of Q_(1-2) and W_(1-2) are + 30kJ and + 60kJ, respectively. If the system is returned to state 1 from state 2 and Q_(2-1) is –20kJ, what is the value of the work W_(2-1) ?
(a) +20 kJ
(b) -50 kJ
(c) -80 kJ
(d) +40 kJ
Q5. Consider the following statements:
A real gas obeys perfect gas law at very
1. high temperatures
2. high pressures
3. low pressures
Which of these statements is/are correct?
(a) 1 only
(b) 1 and 3
(c) 2 only
(d) 3 only
Q6. An engine working on Carnot cycle rejects 40% of absorbed heat from the source, while the sink temperature is maintained at 127°c, then the source temperature is
Sol. A closed system consists of fixed amount of mass and no mass can cross its boundary but energy in the from of heat and work can cross the boundary.
Sol. Volume of pressure cooker is always constant. Hence, it is isochoric process.
Sol. The given statement is for first law of Thermodynamics i.e.
Sol. For process 1 -2
For process 2 – 1
Sol. A real gas starts behaving as ideal gas at low pressure and high temperature.
Sol. Sink temperature: T_2=127°C = 127 + 273 = 400K
It is given that engine rejects 40% of absorbed heat from the source
For a Carnot cycle engine
Q_1/T_1 =(0.4 Q_1)/400
