Saturated vapor at pressure in rigid tank

A 1.8m^3 rigid tank contains steam at 220C. One third of the volume is in the liquid phase and the rest is in the vapor form. Determine:
A) The pressure of the steam
B) The quality of the saturated mixture
C) the density of the mixture

Solution Preview

a. When there is a mixture of liquid and vapor phase, the steam is saturated. Thus we use the saturated steam table at 220C (see the first reference). The saturated pressure ...
