PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/2 INPUT8.0 Introduction In thermodynamic systems, the working fluid can be in the liquid, steam or gaseous phase. In this unit, the properties of liquid and steam are investigated in some details as the state of a system can be described in terms of its properties. A substance that has a fixed composition throughout is called a pure substance. Pure chemicals (H2O, N2, O2, Ar, Ne, Xe) are always pure substances. We all know from experience that substances exist in different phases. A phase of substance can be defined as that part of a pure substance that consists of a single, homogenous aggregate of matter. The three common phases for H2O that are usually used are solid, liquid and steam. When studying phases or phase changes in thermodynamics, one does not need to be concerned with the molecular structure and behavior of the different phases. However, it is very helpful to have some understanding of the molecular phenomena involved in each phase. Molecular bonds are strongest in solids and weakest in steams. One reason is that molecules in solids are closely packed together, whereas in steams they are separated by great distances.
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/3 The three phases of pure substances are: - Solid Phase In the solid phase, the molecules are; (a) closely bound, therefore relatively dense; and (b) arranged in a rigid three-dimensional pattern so that they do not easily deform. An example of a pure solid state is ice. Liquid Phase In the liquid phase, the molecules are; (a) closely bound, therefore also relatively dense and unable to expand to fill a space; but (b) they are no longer rigidly structured so much so that they are free to move within a fixed volume. An example is a pure liquid state. Steam Phase In the steam phase, the molecules; (a) virtually do not attract each other. The distance between the molecules are not as close as those in the solid and liquid phases; (b) are not arranged in a fixed pattern. There is neither a fixed volume nor a fixed shape for steam. The three phases described above are illustrated in Fig. 8.0 below. The following are discovered: (a) the positions of the molecules are relatively fixed in a solid phase; (b) chunks of molecules float about each other in the liquid phase; and (c) the molecules move about at random in the steam phase.

PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/4 8.1 Phase-Change Process The distinction between steam and liquid is usually made (in an elementary manner) by stating that both will take up the shape of their containers. However liquid will present a free surface if it does not completely fill its container. Steam on the other hand will always fill its container. With these information, let us consider the following system: A container is filled with water, and a moveable, frictionless piston is placed on the container at State 1, as shown in Fig. 8.1. As heat is added to the system, the temperature of the system will increase. Note that the pressure on the system is being kept constant by the weight of the piston. The continued addition of heat will cause the temperature of the system to increase until the pressure of the steam generated exactly balances the pressure of the atmosphere plus the pressure due to the weight of the piston. STATE 1 STATE 2 STATE 3 STATE 4 W W W W Steam Superheated Liquid Steam Figure 8.1 Heating water and steam at constant pressure At this point, the steam and liquid are said to be saturated. As more heat is added, the liquid that was at saturation will start to vaporize until State 2. The two-phase mixture of steam and liquid at State 2 has only one degree of freedom, and as long as liquid is present, vaporization will continue at constant temperature. As long as liquid is present, the mixture is said to be wet steam, and both the liquid and steam are saturated. After all the liquid is vaporized, only steam is present at State 3, and the further addition of heat will cause the temperature of steam to increase at
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/5 constant system pressure. This state is called the superheated state, and the steam is said to be superheated steam as shown in State 4.8.2 Saturated and Superheated Steam While tables provide a convenient way of presenting precise numerical presentations of data, figures provide us with a clearer understanding of trends and patterns. Consider the following diagram in which the specific volume of H2O is presented as a function of temperature and pressure1: T, oC 300 4 Superheated steam Saturated 2 mixture 3 100 Compressed liquid 20 1 v, m3/kg Figure 8.2-1 T-v diagram for the heating process of water at constant pressure Imagine that we are to run an experiment. In this experiment, we start with a mass of water at 1 atm pressure and room temperature. At this temperature and pressure we may measure the specific volume (1/ρ = 1/1000 kg/m3). We plot this state at point 1 on the diagram. If we proceed to heat the water, the temperature will rise. In addition, water expands slightly as it is heated which makes the specific volume increase slightly. We may plot the locus of such points along the line from State 1 to State 2. We speak of liquid in one of these conditions as being compressed or subcooled liquid.1 Figures from Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach, 3rd Ed by Cengel and Boles
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/6 State 2 is selected to correspond to the boiling point (100 oC). We speak of State 2 as being the saturated liquid state, which means that all of the water is in still liquid form, but ready to boil. As we continue to heat past the boiling point 2, a fundamental change occurs in the process. The temperature of the water no longer continues to rise. Instead, as we continue to add energy, liquid progressively changes to steam phase at a constant temperature but with an increasing specific volume. In this part of the process, we speak of the water as being a saturated mixture (liquid + steam). This is also known as the quality region. At State 3, all liquid will have been vaporised. This is the saturated steam state. As we continue to heat the steam beyond State 3, the temperature of the steam again rises as we add energy. States to the right of State 3 are said to be superheated steam. Summary of nomenclature: Compressed or subcooled liquid (Between States 1 & 2) A liquid state in which the fluid remains entirely within the liquid state, and below the saturation state. Saturated liquid (State 2) All fluid is in the liquid state. However, even the slightest addition of energy would result in the formation of some vapour. Saturated Liquid-Steam or Wet Steam Region (Between States 2 & 3) Liquid and steam exist together in a mixture. Saturated steam (State 3) All fluid is in the steam state, but even the slightest loss of energy from the system would result in the formation of some liquid. Superheated steam (The right of State 3) All fluid is in the steam state and above the saturation state. The superheated steam temperature is greater than the saturation temperature corresponding to the pressure.
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/7 The same experiment can be conducted at several different pressures. We see that as pressure increases, the temperature at which boiling occurs also increases.2 T, oC P = 221.2 bar Critical point P = 150 bar P = 80 bar 374.15 P = 10 bar P = 5 bar P = 1.01325 bar Saturated Saturated liquid steam 0.00317 v, m3/kg Figure 8.2-2 T-v diagram of constant pressure phase change processes of a pure substance at various pressures for water. It can be seen that as pressure increases, the specific volume increase in the liquid to steam transition will decrease. At a pressure of 221.2 bar, the specific volume change which is associated to a phase increase will disappear. Both liquid and steam will have the same specific volume, 0.00317 m3/kg. This occurs at a temperature of 374.15 oC. This state represents an important transition in fluids and is termed the critical point.2 Figures from Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach, 3rd Ed by Cengel and Boles

PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/11 INPUT8.3 Properties of a Wet Mixture Between the saturated liquid and the saturated steam, there exist a mixture of steam plus liquid (wet steam region). To denote the state of a liquid-steam mixture, it is necessary to introduce a term describing the relative quantities of liquid and steam in the mixture. This is called the dryness fraction (symbol x). Thus, in 1 kg of wet mixture, there must be x kg of saturated steam plus (1 – x) kg of saturated liquid. x kg of steam total mass = 1 kg (1 - x ) kg of liquid Figure 8.3-1 Liquid-steam mixture The dryness fraction is defined as follows; mass of dry saturated steam dryness fraction = total mass msteam (8.1) x= mtotal where mtotal = mliquid + msteam

A B ts vf vg v Figure 8.3-2 P-v diagram showing the location point of the dryness fraction 8.3.1 Specific volume For a wet steam, the total volume of the mixture is given by the volume of liquid present plus the volume of dry steam present. Therefore, the specific volume is given by, volume of a liquid + volume of dry steam v= total mass of wet steam Now for 1 kg of wet steam, there are (1 – x) kg of liquid and x kg of dry steam, where x is the dryness fraction as defined earlier. Hence, v = vf(1 – x) + vgx The volume of the liquid is usually negligibly small as compared to the volume of dry saturated steam. Hence, for most practical problems, v = xvg (8.2) Where, vf = specific volume of saturated liquid (m3/kg) vg = specific volume of saturated steam (m3/kg) x = dryness fraction
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/13 8.3.2 Specific enthalpy In the analysis of certain types of processes, particularly in power generation and refrigeration, we frequently encounter the combination of properties U + PV. For the sake of simplicity and convenience, this combination is defined as a new property, enthalpy, and given the symbol H. H = U + PV (kJ) or, per unit mass h = u + Pv (kJ/kg) (8.3) The enthalpy of wet steam is given by the sum of the enthalpy of the liquid plus the enthalpy of the dry steam, i.e. h = hf(1 – x) + xhg h = hf + x(hg – hf ) ∴ h = hf + xhfg (8.4) Where, hf = specific enthalpy of saturated liquid (kJ/kg) hg = specific enthalpy of saturated steam (kJ/kg) hfg = difference between hg and hf (that is, hfg = hg - hf ) 8.3.3 Specific Internal Energy Similarly, the specific internal energy of a wet steam is given by the internal energy of the liquid plus the internal energy of the dry steam, i.e. u = uf(1 – x) + xug ∴ u = uf + x(ug – uf ) (8.5) Where, uf = specific enthalpy of saturated liquid (kJ/kg) ug = specific enthalpy of saturated steam (kJ/kg) ug – uf = difference between ug and uf
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/14 Equation 8.5 can be expressed in a form similar to equation 8.4. However, equation 8.5 is more convenient since ug and uf are tabulated. The difference is that, ufg is not tabulated.
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/15 8.3.4 Specific Entropy A person looking at the steam tables carefully will notice two new properties i.e. enthalpy h and entropy s. Entropy is a property associated with the Second Law of Thermodynamics, and actually, we will properly define it in Unit 9 . However, it is appropriate to introduce entropy at this point. The entropy of wet steam is given by the sum of the entropy of the liquid plus the entropy of the dry steam, i.e. s = sf(1 – x) + xsg s = sf + x(sg – sf ) ∴ s = sf + xsfg (8.4) Where, sf = specific enthalpy of saturated liquid (kJ/kg K) sg = specific enthalpy of saturated steam (kJ/kg K) sfg = difference between sg and sf (that is, sfg = sg - sf ) REMEMBER! These equations are used very often and are, therefore, important to remember! v = xvg h = hf + xhfg u = uf + x(ug – uf ) s = sf + xsfg
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/168.4 The Use of Steam Tables The steam tables are available for a wide variety of substances which normally exist in the vapour phase (e.g. steam, ammonia, freon, etc.). The steam tables which will be used in this unit are those arranged by Mayhew and Rogers, which are suitable for student use. The steam tables of Mayhew and Rogers are mainly concerned with steam, but some properties of ammonia and freon-12 are also given. Below is a list of the properties normally tabulated, with the symbols used being those recommended by British Standard Specifications. Table 8.4 The property of steam tables Symbols Units Description p bar Absolute pressure of the fluid o ts C Saturation temperature corresponding to the pressure p bar 3 vf m /kg Specific volume of saturated liquid 3 vg m /kg Specific volume of saturated steam uf kJ/kg Specific internal energy of saturated liquid ug kJ/kg Specific internal energy of saturated steam hf kJ/kg Specific enthalpy of saturated liquid hg kJ/kg Specific enthalpy of saturated steam hfg kJ/kg Change of specific enthalpy during evaporation sf kJ/kg K Specific entropy of saturated liquid sg kJ/kg K Specific entropy of saturated steam sfg kJ/kg K Change of specific entropy during evaporation These steam tables are divided into two types: Type 1: Saturated Water and Steam (Page 2 to 5 of steam tables) Type 2: Superheated Steam (Page 6 to 8 of steam tables) 8.4.1 Saturated Water and Steam Tables
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/17 The table of the saturation condition is divided into two parts. Part 1 Part 1 refers to the values of temperature from 0.01 oC to 100oC, followed by values that are suitable for the temperatures stated in the table. Table 8.4.1-1 is an example showing an extract from the temperature of 10oC.

From equation 8.5, u = uf + x(ug -uf) 2450 = 720 + x(2577 - 720) ∴ x = 0.932 From equation 8.2, v = xvg = 0.932 (0.2403) = 0.2240 m3/kg From equation 8.4, h = hf + xhfg = 721 + 0.932 (2048) = 2629.7 kJ/kg P bar x = 0.932 8 ts = 170.4 oC v m3/kg v vg

PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/23 INPUT 8.4.2 Superheated Steam Tables The second part of the table is the superheated steam tables. The values of the specific properties of a superheated steam are normally listed in separate tables for the selected values of pressure and temperature. A steam is called superheated when its temperature is greater than the saturation temperature corresponding to the pressure. When the pressure and temperature are given for the superheated steam then the state is defined and all the other properties can be found. For example, steam at 10 bar and 200 o C is superheated since the saturation temperature at 10 bar is 179.9 oC. The steam at this state has a degree of superheat of 200 oC – 179.9 oC = 20.1 oC. The equation of degree of superheat is: Degree of superheat = tsuperheat – tsaturation (8.5) The tables of properties of superheated steam range in pressure from 0.006112 bar to the critical pressure of 221.2 bar. At each pressure, there is a range of temperature up to high degrees of superheat, and the values of specific volume, internal energy, enthalpy and entropy are tabulated. For the pressure above 70 bar, the specific internal energy is not tabulated. The specific internal energy is calculated using the equation: u = h – pv (8.6) For reference, the saturation temperature is inserted in brackets under each pressure in the superheat tables and values of vg, ug, hg and sg are also given. A specimen row of values is shown in Table 8.5.2. For example, from the superheated table at 10 bar and 200 oC, the specific volume is 0.2061 m3/kg and the specific enthalpy is 2829 kJ/kg.

PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/25 Example 8.6 Steam at 100 bar has a specific volume of 0.02812 m 3/kg. Find the temperature, degree of superheat, specific enthalpy and specific internal energy. Solution to Example 8.6 First, it is necessary to decide whether the steam is wet, dry saturated or superheated. At 100 bar, vg = 0.01802 m3/kg. This is less than the actual specific volume of 0.02812 m3/kg. Hence, the steam is superheated. The state of the steam is at point A in the diagram below. P bar A 100 425 oC ts = 311.0 oC v m3/kg vg= 0.01802 v = 0.02812 An extract from the superheated table, p t 425 (ts) vg 0.01802 v x 10-2 2.812 100 hg 2725 h 3172 (311.0) sg 5.615 s 6.321 From the superheated table at 100 bar, the specific volume is 0.02812 m 3/kg at a temperature of 425 oC. Hence, this is the isothermal line, which passes through point A as shown in the P-v diagram above. Degree of superheat = 425 oC – 311 oC
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/26 = 114 oC So, at 100 bar and 425 oC, we have v = 2.812 x 10-2 m3/kg h = 3172 kJ/kg ∴ From equation 8.6, u = h – Pv = 3172 kJ/kg – (100 x 102 kN/m2)(2.812 x 10-2 m3/kg) = 2890.8 kJ/kg Note that equation 8.6 must be used to find the specific internal energy for pressure above 70 bar as the specific internal energy is not tabulated.
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/27 Activity 8C8.6 Steam at 120 bar is at 500 oC. Find the degree of superheat, specific volume, specific enthalpy and specific internal energy.8.7 Steam at 160 bar has a specific enthalpy of 3139 kJ/kg. Find the temperature, degree of superheat, specific enthalpy and specific internal energy.
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/28 Feedback to Activity 8C8.6 From the superheated table at 120 bar, the saturation temperature is 324.6 oC. Therefore, the steam is superheated. Degree of superheat = 500 oC – 324.6 oC = 175.4 oC So, at 120 bar and 500 oC, we have v = 2.677 x 10-2 m3/kg h = 3348 kJ/kg ∴ From equation 8.6, u = h – Pv = 3348 kJ/kg – (120 x 102 kN/m2)(2.677 x 10-2 m3/kg) = 3026.76 kJ/kg8.7 At 160 bar, hg = 2582 kJ/kg. This is less than the actual specific enthalpy of 3139 kJ/kg. Hence, the steam is superheated. From the superheated table at 160 bar, the specific enthalpy of 3139 kJ/kg is located at a temperature of 450 oC. The degree of superheat = 450 oC – 347.3 oC = 102.7 oC At 160 bar and 450 oC, we have v = 1.702 x 10-2 m3/kg ∴ From equation 8.6, u = h – Pv = 3139 kJ/kg – (160 x 102 kN/m2)(1.702 x 10-2 m3/kg) = 2866.68 kJ/kg
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/29 INPUT8.5 Interpolation The first interpolation problem that an engineer usually meets is that of “reading between the lines” of a published table, like the Steam Tables. For properties which are not tabulated exactly in the tables, it is necessary to interpolate between the values tabulated as shown in Fig. 8.5-1 below. In this process it is customary to use a straight line that passes through two adjacent table points, denoted by α and β. If we use the straight line then it is called “interpolation”. f(x) Interpolation x α β Figure 8.5-1 Interpolation The values in the tables are given in regular increments of temperature and pressure. Often we wish to know the value of thermodynamic properties at intermediate values. It is common to use linear interpolation as shown in Fig. 8.5-2. y y2 (x2 , y2) From Fig. 8.5.2, the value of x can be determined by: y (x , y) x − x1 x − x1 = 2 y1 (x1 , y1) y − y1 y 2 − y1 ( y − y1 )( x2 − x1 ) x= + x1 x ( y 2 − y1 ) x1 x x2 Figure 8.5-2 Linear interpolation
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/30 There are two methods of interpolation: i. single interpolation ii. double interpolation 8.5.1 Single interpolation Single interpolation is used to find the values in the table when one of the values is not tabulated. For example, to find the saturation temperature, specific volume, internal energy and enthalpy of dry saturated steam at 77 bar, it is necessary to interpolate between the values given in the table. Example 8.6 Determine the saturation temperature at 77 bar. Solution to Example 8.6 The values of saturation temperature at a pressure of 77 bars are not tabulated in the Steam Tables. So, we need to interpolate between the two nearest values that are tabulated in the Steam Tables. t s − 290.5 295 − 290.5 P = 77 − 75 80 − 75 80 t s − 290.5 295 − 290.5 77 = 2 5 75 2( 4.5) ts = + 290.5 ts 5 290.5 ts 295 ts = 292.3 oC
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/31 Example 8.7 Determine the specific enthalpy of dry saturated steam at 103 bar. Solution to Example 8.7 P hg − 2725 2715 − 2725 = 103 − 100 105 − 100 105 103 3( −10) hg = + 2725 5 100 hg hg = 2719 kJ/kg 2725 hg 2715 Example 8.8 Determine the specific volume of steam at 8 bar and 220oC. Solution to Example 8.8 From the Steam Tables at 8 bar, the saturated temperature (ts) is 170.4 oC. ∴The steam is at superheated condition as the temperature of the steam is 220oC > ts.

PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/32 8.5.2 Double Interpolation In some cases a double interpolation is necessary, and it’s usually used in the Superheated Steam Table. Double interpolation must be used when two of the properties (eg. temperature and pressure) are not tabulated in the Steam Tables. For example, to find the enthalpy of superheated steam at 25 bar and 320oC, an interpolation between 20 bar and 30 bar is necessary (as shown in example 8.9). An interpolation between 300oC and 350oC is also necessary. Example 8.8 Determine the specific enthalpy of superheated steam at 25 bar and 320oC. Solution to Example 8.8 An extract from the Superheated Steam Tables: t(oC) 300 320 350 p(bar) 20 3025 h1 3138 25 h 30 2995 h2 3117 Firstly, find the specific enthalpy (h1) at 20 bar and 320 oC; At 20 bar, T h1 − 3025 3138 − 3025 350 = 320 − 300 350 − 300 320 300 h1 = 3070.2 kJ/kg h 3025 h1 3138
PROPERTIES OF STEAM J2006/8/33 Secondly, find the specific enthalpy (h2) at 30 bar and 320 oC; At 30 bar, T h2 − 2995 3117 − 2995 = 320 − 300 350 − 300 350 320 h2 = 3043.8 kJ/kg 300 h 2995 h2 3117 Now interpolate between h1 at 20 bar, 320oC, and h2 at 30 bar, 320oC in order to find h at 25 bar and 320oC. At 320oC, P h − h1 h − h1 = 2 25 − 20 30 − 20 30 h − 3070.2 30438 − 3070.2 . 25 = 25 − 20 30 − 20 20 h = 3057 kJ/kg. h h1 h h2 Example 8.9 0.9 m3 of dry saturated steam at 225 kN/m2 is contained in a rigid cylinder. If it is cooled at constant volume process until the pressure drops to180 kN/m2, determine the following: a) mass of steam in the cylinder b) dryness fraction at the final state Sketch the process in the form of a P-v diagram.

Note that the pressure 2.25 bar is not tabulated in the steam tables and it is necessary to use the interpolation method. From the Steam Tables, vg at 2.2 bar = 0.8100 m3/kg vg at 2.3 bar = 0.7770 m3/kg ∴vg1 at 2.25 bar, v g1 − 0.8100 0.7770 − 0.8100 = 2.25 − 2.20 2.30 − 2.20 vg1 = 0.7935 m3/kg V1 ∴ Mass of steam in cylinder, m = (m3 x kg/m3) vg1 0.9 = 0.7935 = 1.134 kg b) At constant volume process, Initial specific volume = final specific volume v1 = v2 x1vg1 at 2.25 bar = x2vg2 at 1.8 bar 1(0.7935) = x2 (0.9774) 1(0.7935) x2 = 0.9774 P = 0.81 bar 1 v1 = v2 2.25 1.80 2 v m3/kg 0.7935 0.9774

At 500oC, P 30 u1 − 3116 3108 − 3116 = 24 24 − 20 30 − 20 20 u1 = 3112.8 kJ/kg u 3116 u1 3108 Secondly, find the final internal energy at 6 bar where x = 0.9, u2 = uf2 + x2( ug2 -uf2 ) = 669 + 0.9(2568 - 669) = 2378.1 kJ/kg ∴ The changes in the internal energy of steam is, (u2 – u1) = 2378.1 – 3112.8 = - 734.7 kJ/kg P bar 500oC v1 = v2 o 221.8 C 1 24 158.8oC 500oC 6 221.8oC 2 158.8oC v m3/kg v1 = v2
