This lesson covers the thermodynamics of a mixing chamber, focusing on the heat loss that occurs during the process. It explains the concept using a detailed example where water at 200k and 30 degrees Celsius enters a mixing chamber and is mixed with steam at 200kpa and 200 degrees Celsius. The lesson further discusses the calculation of the required mass flow rate of steam and the rate of entropy generation during the mixing process. It also explores the concept of steady flow energy equation and entropy balance equation. The lesson concludes with an examination of unsteady flow situations and the application of mass conservation equation.

- The mixing process in a chamber involves heat loss, which can be calculated using specific enthalpy and entropy.
- The entropy generation during the mixing process is due to internal and external irreversibilities.
- In unsteady flow situations, the mass conservation equation is used to calculate the rate of change of mass in the control volume.
- The entropy generated in the universe as a result of the mixing process can be calculated using the unsteady entropy balance equation.
