steam tables phases

hi, i understand how to use steam tables, but my problem is i cannot tell which phase the water is currently in.

i do all the calculations, but how do i choose which phase?

i ask because one of my questions asks for phase difference.

many thanks

I'm not sure. Would a standard phase diagram help? I would think if you can calculate P and T you could use this.

hi, i only get the steam tables in the exam so no diagram, the question gave me two parameters, using them i had to use the steam tables to determine the other values and then state the phase difference.

thanks
