PROPERTY DIAGRAMS AND STEAM TABLES
The important information from this chapter is summarized below.
Property Diagrams and Steam Tables Summary
The Mollier diagram can be used to determine various properties of a fluid.
Mollier diagram is an h versus s plot.
Can only be used when quality is greater than 50% and for superheated
Contains a series of constant temperature, constant pressure, constant
moisture content, and constant superheat lines.
The steam tables can be used to determine various properties of water using the
v = xvg + (1 - x)vf
h = xhg + (1 - x)hf
s = xsg + (1 - x)sf
The change in enthalpy of a fluid as it passes through a component can be
determined using a Mollier diagram on steam tables.
