1. 0.4 m3 of air at 5 bar and 130º C is contained in a system.

2. A fluid flows through a steady flow open system at rate of 3 Kg/s. At the system inlet, the pressure,
velocity and internal energy are 5 atm, 150 m/s and 2000 kJ/Kg respectively and the specific volume is
0.4 m3/Kg. The fluid leaves the system with 1.2 atm, 80 m/s an internal energy of 1300 kJ/Kg and specific
