An oil pump is drawing 44 kW of electric power while pumping oil with ρ= 860 kg/m^3 at a rate of 0.1 m^3/s. The inlet and outlet diameters of the piper are 8 cm and 12 cm, respectively. If the pressure rise of oil in the pump is measured to be 500 kPa and the motor efficiency is 90 percent, determine the mechanical efficiency of the pump.
A well-insulated rigid tank contains 3 kg of saturated liquid-vapor mixture of water at 200 kPa. Initially, three-quarters of the mass is in the liquid phase. An electric resistance heater placed in the tank is now turned on and kept on until all the liquid in the tank is vaporized. Determine the entropy change of the steam during this process. Answer: 11.1 kJ/K
A slab of insulating material of uniform thickness d, lying between to along the x axis, extends infinitely in the y and z directions, as shown in the figure. The slab has a uniform charge density . The electric field is zero in the middle of the slab, at x=0. Which of the following statements is true of the electric field at the surface of one side of the slab?
Answer the following T/F questions based on the behavior of the circuit in the above Figure 5:
(1) A transient current flows for a short time after the RELAY is switched to either the N.O.("normally open") or N.C. ("normally closed") position.
(2)The transient currents that flow in this experiment decays exponentially to zero.
(3)The capacitor charge Q exponentially decays to zero when the RELAY is thrown to position N.O.
(4)When the current I is positive, the capacitor charge Q is decreasing.
(5)When the current I is positive, the measured VOLTAGE IN 2 will be negative.
(6)When the capacitor charge Q is positive, the measured VOLTAGE IN 1 is positive.
(7)The quantity t1/2=? ln 2 is called the half-life of an exponential decay, where ?=RC is the time constant in an RC circuit. The current in a discharging RC circuit drops by half whenever t increases by . For a circuit with R=2 k? and C=3 ?F, if the current is 6 am at t=5 ms, at what time (in ms) will the current be 3 mA?
A person who starting from rest at the top of a cliff swings down at the end of a rope,releases it, and falls into the water below. There are two paths bywhich the person can enter the water. Suppose he enters the waterat a speed of 13 m/s via path 1. How fast is he moving on path 2 when he releases the rope at a height of 5.20 m above the water? Ignore the effects of air resistance.
