Erratum[edit | edit source]

1.19e[edit | edit source]

Convert to watts

Book says the answer is 2,712W
Should be:
In addition, with proper significant figures, this should probably be just 271W.

2.20[edit | edit source]

A rigid vessel contains water at 400oF. Heat is added so that the water passes through the critical point. Find the quality at 440oF.

  • At critical point,

  • At 440oF,

  • At 440oF,
If it is a rigid vessel the specific volume cannot change. There is only one specific volume at the critical point.
Book says: 0.01728
Should be: <math>x=\frac{v-v_f}{v_g-v_f}=\frac{0.05053 - 0.01926}{1.2192 - 0.01926}=0.02606
