A tank with a volume of 14 m3 holds steam at 400°C and 20 bar at rest and zero elevation relative to the exergy reference environment. Determine the exergy of the steam in the tank, in kJ. To what elevation, in m, would a 10,000-kg mass have to be raised for its exergy to equal that of the steam in the tank? Let T0= 298 K, p0= 1 bar, g= 9.81 m/s2.
