  3. Question 19 An adiabatic vessel contains 2 kg of water at 25 C. By paddle-wheel work transfer, the temperature of water is increased to 30 C. If the specific heat of water is assumed constant at 4.187 kJ/kg K, find the entropy change of the universe.

  5. Question 20 A copper rod is of length 1 m and diameter 0.01 m. One end of the rod is at 100 C, and the other at 0 C. The rod is perfectly insulated along its length and the thermal conductivity of copper is 380 W/mK. Calculate the rate of heat transfer along the rod and the rate of entropy production due to irreversibility of this heat transfer.

  6. Solution 20 0.01 m A = 7.854 10-5 m2 373 K K 380 W/m- K 273 K AT A X = 380 7.854 10-5 100 w = 2.9845W At the 373 K end from surrounding Q amount heat is go to the system.

  7. Question 21 A body of constant heat capacity Cp and at a temperature Ti is put in contact with a reservoir at a higher temperature T. The pressure remains constant while the body comes to equilibrium with the reservoir. Show that the entropy change of the universe is equal to T, -T, T -T, - ln 1+ Prove that entropy change is positive. Given in (1 + x) = x--+ where x<1
