A person eats a McDonald's Big Mac sandwich (530 Cal), a second person eats a Burger King Whopper sandwich (640 Cal) , and a third person eats 50 olives with regular french fries (350 Cal) for lunch. Determine who consumes the most calories. An olive contains about 5 Calories.
Step 11 of 2
The metabolizable energy contents of different foods are 530 Cal for the Big Mac, 640 Cal for the whopper, 350 Cal for french fries, and 5 Cal for each olive. Total calories consumed by each person during lunch Person 1: Lunch calories = 530 Cal Person 2: Lunch Calories = 640 Cal Person 3: Lunch calories = 350+5*50 = 600 Cal

An ideal Otto cycle has a compression ratio of 8. At the beginning of the compression process, air is at 95 kPa and and 750 kJ/kg of heat is transferred to air during the constant-volume heat-addition process. Taking into account the variation of specific heats with temperature, determine (a) the pressure and temperature at the end of the heat-addition process. (b) the net work output, (c) the thermal efficiency, and (d) the mean effective pressure for the cycle.
Steam flows steadily through an adiabatic turbine. The inlet conditions of the steam are 4 MPa, 500C, and 80 m/s, and the exit conditions are 30 kPa, 92 percent quality, and 50 m/s. The mass flow rate of the steam is 12 kg/s. Determine (a) the change in kinetic energy, (b) the power output, and (c) the turbine inlet area. Answers: (a) -1.95 kJ/kg, (b) 12.1 MW, (c) 0.0130 m^2
Water is being heated in a closed pan on top of a range while being stirred by a paddle wheel. During the process, 30 kJ of heat is transferred to the water, and 5 kJ of heat is lost to the surrounding air. The paddle-wheel work amounts to 500 Nm. Determine the final energy of the system if its initial energy is 12.5 kJ. Answer: 38.0 kJ
