Important concepts in Thermal Engineering for GATE Mechanical

The present post (Part-1) contains the important basic concepts in Thermal Engineering in Mechanical Engineering. Note down each concepts which might help in GATE 2013 Mechanical.

  • The pressure of the gas in terms of its mean kinetic energy per unit volume E is equal to 2E/3 and Kinetic Energy is always proportional to temperature.
  • The super heated vapor acts as perfect gas and obeys all gas laws
  • Absolute zero pressure will occur when there is no molecular momentum
  • No liquid can exists at absolute zero pressure and absolute pressure can be attained at 0 Kelvin
  • Behavior of gas can be fully determined by four gas laws
  • For air ratio of specific heats is 1.4
  • Mono-atomic gas has highest ratio of specific heat = 1.66
  • As per Joule’s law internal energy is function of temperature.
  • The same volume of all gases would represents their molecular weights
  • Gases have two value of specific heat. One is at constant pressure and one is at constant volume
  • The molecular weights of all the perfect gases occupy the same volume under same conditions of pressure and temperature.
  • Work done in free expansion process is always zero
  • Work done for rigid container having gas, is zero
  • Heat and work are not properties of system
  • Absolute value of internal energy cannot be found but only change in internal energy can be found
  • On weight basis air contains 23 parts of oxygen
  • Heat and work are path functions
