## What is steady-state energy balance?

Steady State Energy Balance on an Open System If the system is closed AND at steady state that means the total heat flow must equal the total work done in magnitude, and be opposite in sign.

## What is the general energy balance equation?

Then the first law equation becomes like this. The change in internal, potential and kinetic energy of the system equals enthalpy goes in minus enthalpy goes out and delta Q and W. 248. If we express the enthalpy and internal energy in differential form, dH equals dU+PdV+VdP and dU is delta Q-PdV.

**What is U in energy balance?**

Each bit of mass within our balances will contain some amount of each of these forms of energy, so that we can write the total energy of some bit of mass as: Etotal = U + Ek + Ep. where U is the internal energy, Ek is the kinetic energy, and Ep is the potential energy.

### What are the three types of energy balance?

You’ll have either a positive energy balance, a negative energy balance, or a perfect balance. Perfect Balance: If you end up with a 0 at the end of your energy equation, you’ve found a perfect energy balance.

### What term in the general energy balance is always zero for a steady state process?

S S S + = ∆ This is called the entropy balance. Therefore, the entropy change of a system is zero if the state of the system does not change during the process. For example entropy change of steady flow devices such as nozzles, compressors, turbines, pumps, and heat exchangers is zero during steady operation.

**What is positive energy balance?**

Positive energy balance occurs when energy intake is greater than energy expenditure, usually resulting in weight gain. Negative energy balance is when energy intake is less than energy expenditure, usually resulting in weight loss. Energy intake is made up of the calories we consume from food and beverages.

#### Why do we do energy balance?

An energy balance helps us understand how products are transformed into one another, highlight the various relationships among these products, and show how all energy types are ultimately used. The energy balance presents all the data in a common energy unit.
