Question: water undergoes a cyclic process at state 1 the starting...

Question details

Water undergoes a cyclic process. At State 1 (the starting point), the system is a saturated liquid at a temperature of 175°C. The system is then isothermally expanded to a saturated vapor (State 2). Heat is added to this system and the pressure increases to 2500 kPa in a constant specific volume process (State 3). From this point, the system is compressed isobarically to a subcooled liquid state at 210 ℃ (State 4). Finally, the pressure is reduced and the system returns to State 1.Number Number kPa VState1 m3/ kg State1 Number Number kPa VState2 m3 / kg State2 Number Phase at State3 s, liquid sat. vapor State3 O SHV O ScL Number O sat. liquid Phase atsat. vapor State4: VState4 m / kg O SHV O SCL
