It is observed that all of the water becomes saturated liquid. Then the system is heated until it makes contact with the piston stopper. a) For all states, calculate the temperature, pressure and specific volume. b) What is the weight of the mass added on the piston? c) Show the state changes, saturated liquid and saturated vapor curve on the T-V and P-V diagrams. Tnx.. Attached Thumbnails
