    Specific properties of water and steam

    Specific properties of water and steam Keywords:  enthalpy- dryness fraction- specific volume-entropy- internal energy Definition: Specific properties are per kg. Examples are specific volume, specific enthalpy, specific entropy, specific internal energy, specific latent heat. Symbol These specific properties are represented by the small alphabet like v, h,s,u,cP etc. Reference temperature for the enthalpy and entropy […]

    Phase transformations

    Phase transformations Keywords: Sub-cooled solid- – phase change- sub-cooled liquid- saturated liquid, phase change, super heating PHASE TRANSFORMATION Phase transformation means change of ice to water and from water to steam. It takes place at constant temperature and at constant pressure. SUB-COOLED ICE Ice at a temperature lower than its freezing temperature 00C is called sub-cooled […]
