Formula to calculate the dry steam and liquid water? thanks 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given the rate of pipe= 100 kg/s The steam flow has quality x= 80% = 0.8, pressure= 90 atm Find the volumetric flows of dry steam and liquid water 2. Relevant equations. [​IMG] Volumetric flow= Area * v where v is the rate of pipe 100 k/s 3. The attempt at a solution Volumetric flow= Av= (1metre square)(100kg/s)= (100metres square)8kg)/s The part that is confusing me is the steam quality. What for I need the steam quality in the problem? Is there any formula that relates the steam quality and rate of the pipe to calculate the volumetric flow of dry steam and liquid water? I don’t know what the problem is giving me the quality and pressure? Looking at the pressure 90 atm for the liquid water and vapor, I will find the temperature of both.Then I will determine the specific volume of both? Yes, exactly, I´m using the steam tables.

It is hard to give a more comprehensive response to such a brief original post. __________________ You have GOT to Laugh !
