## The relation is valid for any process.

5) In
an adiabatic enclosure when the subsystem 1 (mass m, specific heat c, 10 points
temperature T1) is allowed to mix with subsystem 2 (mass m, specific heat c,
temperature T2) by breaking the partition, then the total entropy change will be

6) Final
temperature obtained for minimum and maximum work obtainable 10 points
when two finite bodies at constant heat capacity having temperatures T1 and T2
exchanging heat is respectively given

## Entropy of a system can increase or decrease during heat rejection process

A closed system can experience an increase in entropy only when there is
energy transfer by heat to the system during the process
All slow processes must necessarily be reversible
One corollary of the second law states that change in entropy of a closed
system must be greater than or equal to zero.
8) Choose the correct statement 10 points

The specific enthalpy and entropy of an ideal gas are function of temperature
alone.
The specific internal energy and entropy of an ideal gas are function of
temperature alone.
The specific enthalpy and internal energy of an ideal gas are function of
temperature alone.
The specific enthalpy, internal energy and entropy of an ideal gas are function
of temperature alone.
9) A spring is slowly stretched by a tensile force of 2 kN isothermally at 10 points
300 K. The rate of change of entropy of the spring per unit length (in kJ/K) will be
-0.00667
-0.00333
-150
-300

10)A
piston/cylinder assembly contains 2 kg of liquid water at 20C, 100 10 points
kPa and it is now heated to 300C by a source at 500C. A pressure of 1000 kPa will
lift the piston off the lower stops.
