A mechanical engineering student gets an internship in a power plant.
His first task is to design a piston-cylinder
device which is used to vaporize the saturated water
to saturated vapor under a given
pressure. The volume of the device and how much heat needed for the
vaporization process are the first thing he has to figure out.
What is known:
- The mass of water m = 10.0 kg
- Operation pressure P = 100.0 kPa
