• ME0223 SEM-IV Applied Thermodynamics &amp; Heat Engines Example 1 The e.m.f. in a thermocouple with the test junction at t ⁰ C on gas thermometer scale and reference junction at Ice Point is given by; ε = 0.20 t – 5 X 10 -4 t 2 mV The millivoltmeter is calibrated at Ice and Steam Points. What will this thermocouple read when the gas thermometer reads 50 ⁰ C ? At Ice Point, when t = 0 ⁰ C, ε = 0 mV. At Steam point, when t = 100 ⁰ C, ε = 0.20 X 100 – 5 X 10 -4 X (100) 2 = 15 mV Thus, Δ T = 100 ⁰ C -&gt; Δ ε = 15 mV. At t = 50 ⁰ C, ε = 0.20 X 50 – 5 X 10 -4 X (50) 2 = 8.75 mV Hence, when gas thermometer reads 50 ⁰ C (corresponding to 8.75 mV); the thermocouple will read; 100 15 X 8.75 = 58.33 ⁰ C …ANS

The tank is located on a mountain at 1400 m altitude, where the atmospheric pressure is 85.6 kPa. Determine the air pressure in the tank if h 1 = 0.1 m, h 2 = 0.2 m and h 3 = 0.35 m. Take the densities of water, oil and Mercury to be 1000 kg/m 3 , 850 kg/m3 and 13600 kg/m3 respectively.

• Example 4 A room is initially at the outdoor temperature of 25 ºC. A large fan that consumes 200 W of electricity is turned on. The Heat transfer rate between the room and the outdoor air is given by Q = UA(T i – T o ) where U = 6 W/m 2 .ºC overall Heat transfer coefficient. A= 30 m 2 exposed surface area of the room. T i – T o are the indoor and outdoor temperatures. Determine the indoor air temperature when steady conditions are established. The electricity consumed by a fan is the Energy input to the room, i.e. 200 W. This increases room air temperature. However, at steady state, rate of Heat transfer from the room = Heat input to the room. Applying the First Law of Thermodynamics (i.e. Energy Balance ); W elect,in = Q out = UA(T i – T o ) E in – E out = dE system / dt = 0 Steady State E in – E out 200 (W) = (6 W/m 2 ºC ).(30 m 2 ).(T i – T o ) T i = 26.1 ºC …ANS
