Phase transformations of elements under high pressure (CRC 2005)

As laboratories exchange heavy hydraulic presses and ponderous high-pressure chambers with miniature diamond anvils, conventional warmers with laser heating, and proceed to enhance equipment of outrage compression, there was massive new facts got from the high-pressure, high-temperature amendment of natural parts.

Wärme- und Stoffübertragung

Dieses bewährte Lehrbuch ist eine umfassende und gründliche Darstellung der Wärme- und Stoffübertragung. Ihre Theorie wird systematisch entwickelt, und die Lösungsmethoden aller wichtigen Probleme werden ausführlich behandelt. Alle Gebiete der Wärme- und Stoffübertragung werden dargestellt: Wärmeleitung und Diffusion, konvektiver Wärme- und Stoffaustausch, Wärmetransport beim Kondensieren und Verdampfen, Wärmestrahlung sowie die Berechnung der Wärme- und Stoffübertragung.

Principles of General Thermodynamics

A great textual content for either undergraduate and graduate classes, in addition to a reference treatise in thermodynamics, this quantity presents a rigorous and basic exposition of the legislation and corollaries that observe to classical, quantal, or relativistic structures and to either equilibrium and nonequilibrium states.

Sample text

The setup is in a centrifuge that creates an acceleration of 25 m/s2 in the direction of piston motion towards the gas. Assuming standard atmospheric pressure outside the cylinder, find the gas pressure. 56 A steel tank of cross sectional area 3 m2 and 16 m tall weighs 10 000 kg and it is open at the top. We want to float it in the ocean so it sticks 10 m straight down by pouring concrete into the bottom of it. How much concrete should I put in? Solution: The force up on the tank is from the water pressure at the bottom times its area.

Solution: Specific volume and density are ratios of total mass and total volume. 2 m3 of liquid 25°C water. 1 kg/m3. Find the average specific volume and density of the 1 m3 volume. Solution: Specific volume and density are ratios of total mass and total volume. 42 One kilogram of diatomic oxygen (O2 molecular weight 32) is contained in a 500L tank. Find the specific volume on both a mass and mole basis (v and v ). 43 A 15-kg steel gas tank holds 300 L of liquid gasoline, having a density of 800 kg/m3.

61 Blue manometer fluid of density 925 kg/m3 shows a column height difference of 6 cm vacuum with one end attached to a pipe and the other open to P0 = 101 kPa. What is the absolute pressure in the pipe? 62 The absolute pressure in a tank is 85 kPa and the local ambient absolute pressure is 97 kPa. If a U-tube with mercury, density 13550 kg/m3, is attached to the tank to measure the vacuum, what column height difference would it show? 63 The pressure gauge on an air tank shows 75 kPa when the diver is 10 m down in the ocean.
