    Specific properties of water and steam

    Specific properties of water and steam Definition Specific properties are per kg. Examples are specific volume, specific enthalpy, specific entropy, specific internal energy and 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 of water is 00C. Enthalpy of water […]

    Phase transformations

    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 respectively. SUB-COOLED ICE Ice at a temperature lower than its freezing temperature 00C is called sub-cooled ice. Hence ice at -60C, -130C, -290C will be sub-cooled ice. Consequently ice at -60C […]
