SL.NO QUESTION AND ANSWER


1. Write the two statement of second law of thermodynamics. Its states that it is impossible to construct a heat engine working on cyclic process, whose only purpose is to convert all the heat energy given to it into an equal amount of work. 2. State Carnots theorem. It states that, no heat engine operating in a cyclic process between two fixed temperatures can be more efficient that a reversible engine operating between the same temperature limits. 3. Define PMM second kind. PMM of second kind draws heat continuously from single reservoir and converts it into equal amount of work. This it gives 100% efficiency. 4. What is the difference between heat pump and refrigerator? Heat pump is a machine which delivers the heat to the hot sources by extracting the heat from cold sink with the help of external work is called heat pump. It maintains only the temperature of the source. Refrigerator is a machine which extracts the heat from cold sink and delivers to the surrounding. it maintains only the temperature of the sink. 5.

12. What is the principle increase of entropy? For any infinitesimal process under gone by a system change in entropy dS dQ / T, for reversible process dQ = 0, so dS = 0. For irreversible dS>0 so, the entropy of an isolated system would never decrease it will always increases and remains constant if the pressure is reversible is called as principle increase of entropy. 13. Why the second law is called a directional law of nature? It gives the direction of flow of energy so it is called as directional law. 14. State the Second law of thermodynamics. Also write its physical significance. It states that heat can flow from hot body to cold without any external aid but heat cannot flow from cold body to hot body without any external aid. 15.

17. Why Carnot cycle is not practicable for a steam power plant? (i)There are two processes to be carried out during compression and expansion. For isothermal process the piston moves very slowly and for adiabatic process the piston moves as fast as possible. This speed variation during the same stroke of the piston is not possible. (ii) It is not possible to avoid friction moving parts completely. 18. What are the two major conclusions deduced from the Carnot principles? (i) In all the reversible engine operating between the two given thermal reservoirs with fixed temperature, have the same efficiency. (ii) The efficiency of any reversible heat engine operating between two reservoirs is independent of the nature of the working fluid and depends only on the temperature of the reservoirs. 19. What are the Corollaries of Carnot theorems? (i) In the entire reversible engine operating between the two given thermal reservoirs with fixed temperature, have the same efficiency. (ii) The efficiency of any reversible heat engine operating between two reservoirs is independent of the nature of the working fluid and depends only on the temperature of the reservoirs. 20. Why a heat engine cannot have 100% efficiency? For all the heat engines there will be a heat loss between system and surroundings. Therefore we cant convert all the heat input into useful work. 21.

At a given pressure, the temperature at which a liquid boils is called saturation temperature. At the given temperature the pressure at which the liquid boils is called saturation pressure .It is also called as vapour pressure. Define Latent Heat Of Vaporization?

Explain the terms: degree of super heat, degree of sub cooling? Degree of super heat: It is the difference between superheated temperature and saturated temperature at the same pressure Degree of sub cooling: It is the amount by which the water is cooled beyond the saturated temperature at the same pressure. Define triple point and critical point for pure substance. TRIPLE POINT: It is the state at where all three phases i.e. solid, liquid and vapour to exist in equilibrium. CRITICAL POINT: It represents the highest pressure and temperature at which the liquid and vapour phases coexist in equilibrium. At the critical point the liquid and vapour phases are indistinguishable i.e Liquid directly converted into vapour. What are the merits and demerits of bleeding? MERITS: It increases the thermodynamic efficiency as the heat of the bled steam is not lost in the condenser but is utilized in feed heating DEMERITS: Cost of the plant increases and the work done per kg of steam is reduced which results in higher boiler capacity for given output What is the function of feed water heaters in the regenerative cycle with bleeding? The main function of feed water heater is to increase the temperature of feed water to the saturation temperature corresponding to the boiler pressure before it enters into the boiler. What are the merits and demerits of reheating? MERITS: Marginal increase in thermal efficiency. Increase in work done per kg of stem which results in reduced size of the boilers and other auxiliaries for the same output. we can prevent the turbine from erosion DEMERITS: The cost of the plant increases due to the reheater and its long connections. It also increases the condenser capacity due to increased dryness fraction. Define triple point and critical point TRIPLE POINT: It is the state at where all three phases i.e solid, liquid and vapour to exist in equilibrium. CRITICAL POINT: It represents the highest pressure and temperature at which the liquid and vapour phases coexist in equilibrium. At the critical point the liquid and vapour phases are indistinguishable i.e. Liquid directly converted into vapour Define efficiency ratio The ratio of actual cycle efficiency to that of ideal cycle efficiency is termed as efficiency ratio. What are the advantages of bleeding? It increases the thermodynamic efficiency as the heat of the bled steam is not lost in the condenser but is utilized in feed heating. By bleeding the volume floe at the low pressure end is considerably reduced, this reduces the design difficulties of blades, and also condenser size is reduced. Why reheat cycle is not used for low boiler pressure. At low heat pressures the reheat cycle efficiency may be less than the Rankine cycle efficiency. Since the average temperature during heating will then be low. Define boiling point and melting point BOILING POINT It is the temperature at which the liquid starts to change its state from liquid to vapour. MELTING POINT It is the temperature at which the solid starts to change its state from solid to liquid.
