First Law of Thermodynamics: Control Volumes

_______________________________________________________________

**Problem 1: Air enters an adiabatic nozzle steadily at 300 kPa, 200°C, and 30 m/s and
**

leaves at 100 kPa and 180 m/s. The inlet area of the nozzle is 80 cm2. Determine

(a) the mass flow rate through the nozzle,

(b) the exit temperature of the air, and

(c) the exit area of the nozzle.

(c) The exit area A2 of the nozzle.

Step-4: Analysis

**The region within the nozzle is selected as the system, and its boundaries are indicated by
**

the dashed lines in the schematic diagram. Mass is crossing the boundaries, thus it is a

control volume. And since there is no observable change within the control volume with

time, it is a steady-flow system. As the specified conditions, the air can be treated as an

ideal gas since it is at a high temperature and low pressure relative to its critical values

(Tcr= – 147 °C and Pcr=3390 kPa for nitrogen, the main constituent of air).

**(a) To determine the mass flow rate, we need to find the specific volume of the air
**

first. This is determined from the ideal-gas relation at the inlet conditions:

**Specific volume at inlet: υ1 =

0.4525 m /kg

Since the flow is steady, the mass flow rate through the entire nozzle will remain constant

at this value.

**(b) A nozzle normally involves
**

(i) no shaft or electrical work (w=0),

(ii) negligible heat transfer (q ≈ 0), and

(iii) a small (if any) elevation change between the inlet and exit ( ∆ pe ≈ o).

Then the conservation of energy relation on a unit mass basis for this single-stream

steady-flow system reduces to

q − w = ∆h + ∆ke + ∆pe

0 − 0 = ∆h + ∆ke + 0

Using specific heats at the anticipated average temperature of 450K (Cp=1.020 kJ/kg⋅K,

Cv=0.733 kJ/kg⋅K, and R=Cp–Cv=0.287 kJ/kg⋅K; see Table A-2), the exit temperature of

air is determined to be

**This shows that the temperature of the air is decreased by about 15°C. The temperature
**

drop of the air is mainly due to the conversion of internal energy to the kinetic energy.

**(c) To determine the exit area, we need to find the specific volume of the exit air
**

from the ideal- gas relation.

Since the mass flow rate of the air is constant, exit area can be found from the mass flow

rate equation.

Problem2: A hair dryer is basically a duct in which a few layers of electric resistors are

placed. A small fan pulls the air in and forces it through the resistors where it is heated.

Air enters a 1200 watt hair dryer at 100 kPa and 22°C and leaves at 47°C. The cross-

sectional area of the hair dryer at the exit is 60cm2. The power consumed by the fan is 2

watt and the heat losses through the walls of the hair dryer is 5 watt, determine

(a) the volume flow rate of the air at inlet

(b) the velocity of the air at the exit

Inlet condition 100 22+273=295 ? ?

Exit condition ? 47+273=320 0.006 ?

Step-4: Analysis

The region within the hair dryer is selected as the system, and its boundaries are indicated

by the dashed lines in the schematic diagram. Mass is crossing the boundaries, thus it is a

control volume. And since there is no observable change within the control volume with

time, it is a steady-flow system. As the specified conditions, the air can be treated as an

ideal gas since it is at a high temperature and low pressure relative to its critical values

(Tcr= – 147 °C and Pcr=3390 kPa for nitrogen, the main constituent of air).

**(a) The conservation of energy relation in the rate form for this single-stream steady-
**

flow system is

Q& − W& = m& [∆h + ∆KE + ∆PE ]

V22 − V12

⇒ Q − W = m& (h2 − h1 ) +

& & + g ( z 2 − z1 )

2

Assumptions:

(a) fixed elevation; that is, negligible potential energy (∆PE≈0)

(b) change in kinetic energy is small (∆KE≈0)

(c) inlet and exit sections of the hair dryer are exposed to atmosphere; that is, P1=P2

**Therefore, the reduced form of the energy equation is
**

Q& − W& = m& (h − h ) = m& C (T − T )

2 1 p 2 1

**⇒ ( −5 watt ) − ( −1200 watt − 2 watt ) = m& (1.005 kJ/kg ⋅ K ) ( 320 K − 295 K )
**

1197 watt 1197 J/s

⇒ m& = = = 0.047641 kg/s

(1.005 kJ/kg ⋅ K ) ( 25 K ) (1005 J/kg ⋅ K ) ( 25 K )

**Note: In the above calculation specific heats are calculated at the anticipated average
**

temperature of 300K (Cp=1.005 kJ/kg⋅K, Cv=0.718 kJ/kg⋅K, and

R=Cp–Cv=0.287 kJ/kg⋅K; see Table A-2).

Now, using the equation of state: Pυ = RT

**Specific volume at inlet: υ 1 =
**

RT1

=

( )

0.287 kPa ⋅ m 3 /kg ⋅ K ( 295 K )

= 0.84665 m 3 /kg

P1 100 kPa

**Using the mass conservation equation
**

V1 A1 &

∀

Mass flow rate: m& = ρ 1 V1 A1 = = 1

υ1 υ1

**& is the volume flow rate at inlet.
**

where, ∀ 1

**& = υ m& = ( 0.84665 m 3 /kg) ( 0.047641 kg/s) = 0.04033 m 3 /s
**

Volume flow rate in inlet: ∀ 1 1

(b) mass flow rate must be constant at the inlet and outlet, therefore

V 2 A2 m& υ 2

m& = ρ 2 V 2 A2 = ⇒ V2 =

υ2 A2

The only unknown in above equation is υ2 and it is calculated from

υ2 =

RT2

=

( )

0.287 kPa ⋅ m 3 /kg ⋅ K (320 K )

= 0.9184 m 3 /kg

P2 100 kPa

Now the velocity at the exit is

m& υ 2 ( 0.047641 kg/s) (0.9184 m 3 /kg)

V2 = = = 7.2922 m/s

A2 ( 0.006 m 2 )
