5-1 INTRODUCTION Example 5-1 Calculate the change in entropy when 25 kJ of energy is transferred reversibly and isothermally as heat to a large block of ice at (a) 0 0 C and (b) 100 0 C . Solution (a) The change in entropy is defined as Q S = T 25 10 3 = 92 J / K S = 0 + 273 (b) The change in entropy is defined as Q S = T 25 10 3 S = = 67 J / K 100 + 273 Example 5-2 An ideal gas undergoes a reversible isothermal expansion at 132 0 C . The entropy of the gas increases by 46.2 J / K . How much heat is absorbed? P.U. B.Sc. 2007 Solution The change in entropy is defined as Q S = T Q = (S ) T = (46.2)(132 + 273) Q = 1.87110 4 J / K = 18.71 kJ / K

CH 05 ENTROPY 101 Example 5-3 The ends of a well insulated metal rod are made in contact with two reservoirs at 60 0 C and 15 0 C . During certain time 200 J of heat are transferred from hot reservoir to cold reservoir. What are the entropy changes at the two reservoirs and net change in entropy? K.U. B.Sc. 2000 Solution The entropy change in the hot reservoir is given by QH 200 S H = = = 0.601 J / kg TH (60 + 273) The entropy change in the cold reservoir is given by QL 200 S L = = = 0.775 J / kg TL (15 + 273) The net change in the entropy of the system is S = S H + S L S = 0.601 + 0.775 = 0.174 J / kg Example 5-4 A 1500 kg car traveling at 100 km / h crashes into a concrete wall. If the temperature of the air is 20 0 C , calculate the entropy change in the universe. Solution The entropy change is defined as Q (m v 2 / 2) S = = T T Now m = 1500 kg (100)(1000) 250 v = 100 km / h = m/s = m/s 3600 9 T = 200 C = (20 + 273) K = 293 K Therefore (1500)(250 / 9) 2 S = = 1975 J / K 2(293)

CH 05 ENTROPY 102 Example 5-5 250 g of ice melts (reversible) to water, the temperature remaining at 0 0 C . Calculate the entropy change for ice if its heat of fusion is 334 kJ / kg . P.U. B.Sc. 2004, 2008 Solution For an isothermal and reversible process, the change in entropy is given by Q m L f S = = T T (250 10 3 )(334 103 ) S = = 306 J / K 273 Example 5-6 A lump of ice whose mass is 235 g melts (reversibly) to water, the temperature remaining at 0 0 C throughout the process. What is the entropy change for the ice? The heat of fusion of ice is 334 kJ / kg . K.U. B.Sc. 2004 Solution The change in entropy is given by Q m L f S = = T T 3 Now m = 235 g = 235 10 kg = 2.35 10 1 kg L f = 334 kJ / K = 334 10 3 J / K = 3.34 10 5 J / kg
T = 0 0 C = 273 K

## Hence S = (2.35 10 1 )(3.34 10 5 ) = 288 J / K 273

Example 5-7 Calculate the change of entropy when 54.6 g of ice at 0 0 C is converted into water at 0 0 C at normal pressure. The latent heat of fusion of ice is 80 calories per gram. B.U. B.Sc. 1997A

CH 05 ENTROPY 103 Solution The change in entropy at constant temperature is given by Q m L f S = = T T (54.6)(80) S = calories / K 273 (54.6)(80)(4.186) S = J / K = 66.976 J / K 273 1 calorie = 4.186 J Example 5-8 Calculate the change of entropy when 27.3 g of ice at 0 0 C is converted into water at 0 0 C at normal pressure. The latent heat of fusion of ice is 80 calories per gram. K.U. B.Sc. 1999 Solution The change in entropy at constant temperature is given by Q m L f S = = T T Now m = 27.3 g = 27.3 10 3 kg = 2.73 10 2 kg

L f = 80 calories / gram
Lf =
(80)(4.186) J / kg = 3.3488 10 5 J / kg 10 3 T = 0 0 C = 273 K

Hence (2.73 10 2 )(3.3488 10 5 ) S = = 33.488 J / kg 273 Example 5-9 An ice tray contains 500 g of liquid water at 0 0 C . Calculate the change in entropy of water as it freezes slowly and completely at 0 0 C .

100 0 C is converted into steam at same temperature. The latent heat of vapourization for water is 2.256 10 6 J / kg . Solution Now Q m Lv S = = T T (10)(2.256 106 ) S = = 6.05 10 4 J / K 100 + 273 Example 5-11 Calculate the change of entropy when 7.46 grams of water at 100 0 C are converted into steam at 100 0 C at normal pressure. The latent heat of vapourization for water at 100 0 C is 537 calories/gram. B.U. B.Sc. (Hons.) 1984A Solution The entropy change is defined as Q m Lv S = = T T (7.46)(537) S = = 10.74 calories / K 100 + 273 S = (10.74)(4.186) J / K = 44.96 J / K

1 calorie = 4.186 J

B.Sc. 1999 Solution The entropy change is defined as Q m Lv S = = T T (1)(29.288 10 3 ) S = = 97.6 J / K (27 + 273) Example 5-13 The melting point of copper is 2840 K . What will be the change in entropy when 20 kg of copper melts? The heat of vapourization of copper is 4.73 10 6 J kg 1 . Solution The entropy change is defined as Q m Lv S = = T T (20)(4.73 10 6 ) S = = 3.331 10 4 J / K 2840 Example 5-14 Calculate the change in entropy when 25 g of steam at 100 0 C is converted into water at the same temperature. The latent heat of vapourization for water is 2.256 10 6 J / kg . Solution m Lv Q S = = T T 3 (25 10 )(2.256 106 ) = 151 J K 1 S = (100 + 273) The negative sign indicates that the entropy of the steam decreases.

CH 05 ENTROPY 106 Example 5-15 What is the entropy change of 0.500 kg of steam at
1.00 atm pressure and 100 0 C when it condenses to 0.500 kg of water at 100 0 C ? Solution As steam condenses to water, therefore entropy change will be negative and given by m Lv Q S = = T T (0.500)(2.256 10 6 ) S = = 3.024 10 3 J K 1 (100 + 273)

Example 5-16 For the Carnot cycle shown in Figure, calculate (a) the heat that enters and (b) the work done on the system.

100 + 273 S 2 = (0.100)(4200) n = 131.1 J / K 273 The net change in entropy is given by S = S1 + S 2
S = 122.3 + 131.1 = 253.4 J / K

Example 5-28 Calculate the change of entropy when 10 kg of ice at 0 0 C is changed into water at 2 0 C . (Heat of fusion of ice = 3.34 10 5 J / K and Specific heat of water = 4200 J /(kg K ) ) K.U. B.Sc. 2001, 2003

69160 182 T = 210 T 60900 69160 + 60900 = 210 T + 182 T 130060 = 392 T 130060 T= = 332 K = 590 C 392 The change of entropy when the temperature 50 g of water rises from T2 to T is given by

T S1 = m2 C 2 n T 2 S1 = (0.05)(4200) n (332 / 290) = 28.4 J / K The positive sign indicates gain in entropy. Similarly the change of entropy in 200 g of aluminum, when its temperature falls from T1 to T , is given by T S 2 = m1C1 n T 1 S 2 = (0.2)(910) n (332 / 380) = 24.6 J / K The negative sign indicates the loss in entropy. Hence the change of entropy of the system is S = S1 + S 2 S = 28.4 24.6 = 3.8 J / K Example 5-30 At very low temperatures, the molar specific heat of many solids is (approximately) proportional to T 3 , that is, C v = A T 3 where ' A' depends on particular substance.
