A piston-cylinder device initially contains 0.8 m3 of saturated water vapor (steam) at 250 kPa. At this state, the piston is resting on a set of stops and the mass of the piston is such that a pressure of 300 kPa is required to move it. Heat is slowly transferred to the steam until the volume doubles.
(a) Determine the initial temperature of the steam.
(b) Determine the final temperature of the steam.
(c) Calculate the work done during this process.
The question belongs to Chemistry and it discusses about calculating the initial temperature, the final temperature of steam and the work done during the process.
