A compacted body of iron powder is sintered into a 20mm-diameter, 45-mm-tall cylinder which, upon weighing, is found to have a mass of 98g. Calculate the apparent density, the percentage of theoretical density, and the void volume (porosity) in percent.

Liquid H2O at 8 MPa and 40 degrees C is heated reversibly at constant pressure until the temperature reaches 600 degrees C. Determine the change in entropy of the surrounding (universe).

A bar of steel 1 by 1½ in cross section and 6 in long is subjected to a pull of 6000 lb. What is the average tensile stress in the bar?

Large stationary brayton cycly gas turbine power plant delivers a powr output of 100MW to an electric generator . Minimum temperature is 300K so T1= 300k max temp is 1600k so T3= 1600k Minimum pressure in the cycle is 100kpa compressor pressure ratio is 14 to 1 so p2/p1 = 14 but turbine efficiency is 85% and compressor efficienc

Consider the 2.0micrometer long GaAs device where the E-field is 5kV/cm and Mn*=.067M0. (a) Calculate the transit time of an electron through the device if the mobility is 8000 cm^2V-s. (b) The mean free path of an electron (average velocity x scattering time) is the average distance an electron travels between two consecu

Consider a bar of p-Si that is homogeneously doped to a value of 3x10^15 at T=300K. The applied electric field is zero. A light source is incident on the end of the semiconductor. The excess-carrier concentration generated at x=0 is deltap(0)=deltan(0)=10^13/cm^3. Neglect surface effects. Mun=1200/cm^2/Vs. Mup=400/cm^2/Vs.

Q. An n-type silicon sample with Nd=10^16cm-3 is steadily illuminated such that g'=10^21cm-s^-1. If tn0=tp0=10^-6s, calculate the position of the quasi-Fermi levels for electrons and holes with respect to the intrinsic level (assume that ni=1.5x10^10cm^-3).

Compare a nonuniform flow with the average velocity. See attachment for full problem including diagram.

The area of morecambe bar at high water is approx. 200km^2. At low water most of the bay is exposed sand. for this exercise, we could assume that on average the sand slopes evenly so that half way between high and low tide the area of water is 100km^2. The tidal range (between low and high tide) varies between 4m at neap tide

A player throws a ball with an initial velocity Vo of 15 m/s from a point A located 1.5 m above the floor. Knowing that the ceiling of the gymnasium is 6 m high, determine the highest point B at which the ball can strike the wall 18 m away. This problem was taken from the curvilinear motion of particles inside the kinematics

Womersly’s Problem: Plot some representative velocity profiles for the purely oscillatory flow of a Newtonian fluid in a long, rigid, straight pipe at various phases of the flow (3-4). For these plots, use the values of constants given below: Constants: Velocity (u): 105 cm/s Diamter (d): 2.23 cm Kinematic viscosit

Consider an ideal steam reheat and regenerative cycle where steam leaves a steam gen and enters a high pressure turbine at 3 Mpa and T=400 C and is extracted to an open feedwater heater at 0.8 Mpa. The remainder is reheated to 400 C at this pressure which flows to the low pressure turbine stage. The condenser saturation pressure

A gearbox operating under steady state conditions recieves 24 hp along the input shaft and delivers 10hp along the output shaft. The outer surface of the gearbox is at 110F and has an area of 1.4 ft^2. The temperature of the surroundings away from the immediate vicinity of the gearbox is 70 F. For the gear box, determine a) the
