Write the most appropriate entropy balance(s) for this process..

Operating a wind tunnel for aircraft experiments begins with adiabatically and reversibly compressing atmospheric air (300 K) into long cylinders comprising a total volume of 20 m3 at 200 bars. The cylinders are initially at 1 bar. Estimate the minimal amount of work required (MJ) to perform the compression step.

(a) Write the most appropriate energy balance(s) for this process. Clearly identify the system(s) pertaining to your energy balance(s). Explain your reasoning briefly.

 

(b) Write the most appropriate entropy balance(s) for this process. Clearly identify the system(s) pertaining to your entropy balance(s). Explain your reasoning briefly.

 

(c) Solve for the minimal amount of work required (MJ) to perform the compression step.
