A piston-cylinder device contains 0.8kg of steam at 300 degrees C and 1 MPa. Steam is cooled at constant pressure until one-half of the mass condenses.
(a) Show the process on a T-v diagram.
(b) Find the final temperature
(c) Determine the volume change.
Please see attached file.
a. At 1 MPa, the saturated temperature is 180 0C (see saturated steam table). This means we have superheated steam for a start. When steam is cooled at constant pressure, its volume has to reduce to offset the change in ...
The solution provides detailed explanations and calculations, including diagram for the problem.
