8-84 An insulated cylinder initially contains saturated liquid-vapor mixture of water. The cylinder is connected to a supply
line, and the steam is allowed to enter the cylinder until all the liquid is vaporized. The amount of steam that entered the
cylinder and the exergy destroyed are to be determined.
Assumptions 1 This is an unsteady process since the conditions within the device are changing during the process, but it
can be analyzed as a uniform-flow process since the state of fluid at the inlet remains constant. 2 The expansion process is
quasi-equilibrium. 3 Kinetic and potential energies are negligible. 4 The device is insulated and thus heat transfer is
negligible.
Properties The properties of steam are (Tables A-4 through A-6)

Analysis (a) We take the cylinder as the system, which is a control volume.
Noting that the microscopic energies of flowing and nonflowing fluids are
represented by enthalpy h and internal energy u, respectively, the mass and
energy balances for this unsteady-flow system can be expressed as

mi hi  W b,out  m 2 u 2  m1u1 (since Q  ke  pe  0)
Combining the two relations gives 0  W b,out  m 2  m1 hi  m 2 u 2  m1u1
0  m 2  m1 hi  m 2 h2  m1 h1
or,
since the boundary work and U combine into H for constant pressure expansion and compression processes. Solving for
m2 and substituting,
m2 
Thus,

(b) The exergy destroyed during a process can be determined from an exergy balance or directly from its
