QUESTION: 2

A 5m X 8m X 0.3m size concrete slab ( ρ = 2200 kg/m3, CP = 0.88 kJ/kg-K) is used as thermal storage mass in solar heated house. If slab cools overnight from 230C to 180C in 180C house, what will be the net entropy change associated with process?

Solution:

Correct Answer :- d

Explanation : ΔS = mCpln(T2/T1) + Q/T0

m = (5 * 8 * 0.3) * 2200

m = 26400 kg

T1 = 291K, T2 = 296K

T0 = 291K

ΔS = 26400 (.88ln (291/296)+.88 (296-291)/291)

ΔS = 3.4 KJ/K
