19. What are the limitations of first law of thermodynamics? 20. What is perpetual motion machine of first kind?

PART – B
1. a) A rigid tank containing 0.4m3 of air at 400 kPa and 30oC is connected by a valve to a piston cylinder device with zero clearance. The mass of the piston is such that a pressure of 200 kPa is required to raise the piston. The valve is opened slightly and air is allowed to flow into the cylinder until the pressure of the tank drops to 200 kPa. During this process, heat is exchanged with the surrounding such that the entire air remains at 30oC at all times. Determine the heat transfer for this process.
b) A reciprocating air compressor taken in 2m3/min air at 0.11MPa, 298K which it delivers at 1.5 MPa, 384 K to an after cooler where the air is cooled at constant pressure to 298 K. the power absorbed by the compressor is 4.15 kW. Determine the heat transfer in (i) the compressor (ii) the cooler. State your assumptions.
