Heat flow between connected tanks.
Two identical tanks, each with volume 0.250m3,contain steam. Tank A contains 2.5 kg ofsteam at 400 C. Tank B contains 2.5 kg of steam at10 bar.
a. Determine the pressure in tank A. If the state is a vapor/liquid mixture, determine the mass fraction of the vapor.
b. Determine the temperature in tank B. If the state is a vapor/liquid mixture, determine the mass fraction of the vapor.
c. The two tanks are linked with a pipe and their contents are allowed to mix. The tanks are then heated or cooled, as needed, until their contents become saturated vapor. Determine the amount of heat and whether it is to be added to or removed from the tanks.
