Question: a assume a travel mug initially contains 1500 cups 001253...

Question details
  1. a) Assume a travel mug initially contains 1.500 cups (0.01253 ft3) of liquid water at the boiling point at standard atmospheric pressure. What is the mass of water [lbm]? Keep 4 significant digits in your answer.

  2. b) If this same mass of water was to exist as saturated water vapor at -25 °F, what volume would it occupy [ft3]? In the calculation, you will need your answer to the above problem. Note: you will learn toward the end of the course that the maximum amount of water vapor that can be present in the air corresponds to this saturated situation.
