Moist air is treated as an ideal gas mixture of water vapour and dry air (molecular weight of air$= 28.84$ and molecular weight of water $=18$). At a location, the total pressure is $100$ kPa, the temperature is $30^{\circ}$ C and the relative humidity is $55\%$. Given that the saturation pressure of water at $30^{\circ} C$ is $4246$ Pa, the mass of water vapour per kg of dry air is _________ grams.

An ideal gas undergoes a process from state $1 \: (T_1 = 300\: K, \: p_1 = 100 \: kPa)$ to state $2 \: (T_2 = 600 \; K, \: p_2 = 500 \: kPa)$. The specific heats of the ideal gas are: $C_p = 1 \: kJ/kg-K$ and $C_v = 0.7 \: kJ/kg-K$. The change in specific entropy of the ideal gas from state $1$ to state $2$ (in $kJ/kg-K$) is ______ (correct to two decimal places).
