The tank volume; b. The initial pressure in psia; c. The final pressure in psia; d. The final quality factor; e. The heat transfer in Btu; Hint: You’ll want to switch the unit system to English units, under Options/Unit System. 3. (5 points) A mass of 3 kg of R-134a undergoes a polytropic process (PVn = constant) from a pressure of 400 kPa and temperature of 70 °C to a final pressure of 800 kPa. The polytropic exponent n is 1.15. Determine: a. The initial volume in m3; b. The final volume in m3; c. The final temperature in °C; d. The boundary work out (Wb,out) in kJ; e. The heat transfer in kJ; f. +1 Extra credit (solve the problem in EES in addition to the hand calculations) 4. (5 points) A piston/cylinder system contains 0.5 kg of saturated solid water (i.e. ice) at -12 °C. Heat transfer occurs to the system until the system contains only saturated vapor. a. What is the boundary work out (Wb,out) in kJ? b. What is the heat transfer in kJ? For EES problems, print the equation and solution windows.

10.2 California Imaging Center, a not-for-profit business, is evaluating the purchase of new diagnostic equipment. The equipment, which costs $600,000 has an expected life of five years and an estimated salvage value of $200,000 at that time. The equipment is expected to be used 15 times a day for 250 days a year for each year of the project’s life. On average, each procedure is expected to generate $80 in cash collections during the first year of use. Thus, net revenues for Year 1 are estimated at 15 X 250 X $80 =$300,000. Labor and maintenance costs are expected to be $100,000 during the first year of operation, while utilities will cost another $10,000 and cash overhead will increase by $5,000 in Year 1. The cost for expendable supplies is expected to average $5 per procedure during the first year. All costs and revenues are expected to increase at 5 percent inflation rate after the first year. The center’s corporate cost of capital is 10 percent. a. Estimate the project’s net cash flows over its five-year estimated life. (hint: use the following format as a guide.) Year 0 1 2 3 4 5 Equipment Cost Net revenues Less: labor/maintenance costs Utilities cost Supplies Incremental overhead Operating income Equipment salvage value Net cash flow b. What are the project’s NPV and IRR? (Assume for now that the project has average risk.) c. Assume the project is assessed to have high risk and California Imaging Center adds or subtracts 3 percentage points to adjust for project risk. Now, what is the project’s NPV? Does the risk assessment change how the project’s IRR is interpreted?

The stated purpose of the nursing profession is to “deliver excellent care to each patient through the management of resources and to maintain a professional work environment to ensure competence and satisfaction.” In managing nursing services as a CNO, COO, or CEO, how would you measure the performance of your nursing department toward meeting this purpose? List specific dimensions and provide specific examples for the type of healthcare facility that you would like to manage (hospital, clinic, long-term care, home care, or other). Healthcare facility: Hospital

Ronald Wright, Stolen Continents, Ch. 3, pp. 72-83. It’s posted here on Moodle as a PDF( attached) 1.)What’s your gut reaction to this reading? 2.) Give a summary of the meeting and dialogue between the Inca Emperor Atawallpa and the Spanish. 3.) Give the date, place and basic elements of the successful confrontation the Spanish had with Inca Atawallpa and his soldiers. 4.) According to Wright’s account, what do you think is the main reason or reasons that Inca Atawallpa lost this confrontation? What is the evidence for your conclusion?”
