## Mean Effective Pressure in Diesel Cycle Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Mean effective pressure in diesel cycle = Pressure at the start of Isentropic Compression*(Compression ratio^Heat Capacity Ratio)*(Heat Capacity Ratio*(Cutoff ratio-1)-(Compression ratio^(1-Heat Capacity Ratio))*(Cutoff ratio^Heat Capacity Ratio-1))/((Heat Capacity Ratio-1)*(Compression ratio-1))
Pmean = P1*(r^γ)*(γ*(Cr-1)-(r^(1-γ))*(Cr^γ-1))/((γ-1)*(r-1))
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Pressure at the start of Isentropic Compression - Pressure at the start of Isentropic Compression is the pressure inside the piston cylinder at the start of isentropic compression process in an otto cycle. (Measured in Kilopascal)
Compression ratio- Compression ratio is ratio between volume of cylinder and combustion chamber.
Heat Capacity Ratio- The heat capacity ratio also known as the adiabatic index is the ratio of specific heats i.e. the ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure to heat capacity at constant volume.
Cutoff ratio- Cutoff ratio is ratio of final to initial volume.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Pressure at the start of Isentropic Compression: 100 Kilopascal --> 100000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
Compression ratio: 2 --> No Conversion Required
Heat Capacity Ratio: 1.4 --> No Conversion Required
Cutoff ratio: 2 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Pmean = P1*(r^γ)*(γ*(Cr-1)-(r^(1-γ))*(Cr^γ-1))/((γ-1)*(r-1)) --> 100000*(2^1.4)*(1.4*(2-1)-(2^(1-1.4))*(2^1.4-1))/((1.4-1)*(2-1))
Evaluating ... ...
Pmean = 104147.626768132
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
104147.626768132 Pascal -->104.147626768132 Kilopascal (Check conversion here)
104.147626768132 Kilopascal <-- Mean effective pressure in diesel cycle
