does a high dryness fraction mean that the steam is dry or wet?
Dryness fraction? Do you mean quality?
possibly two different names for the same thing?
what im talking about is the amount of unboiled water left in the steam.
its used in the enthalpy and entropy equations:
h= hf + x[dryness fraction].hfg
s= sf + x.sfg
If a high "dryness factor" means there is a lot of unboiled water (i.e. water vapor) left in the steam, then I would think that would mean the steam is wet. I'm surprised they would call that "dryness"!
i looked further into my notes and i think it actually means the fraction of water that has been boiled into steam, explaining 'dryness'. thanks for your input!
Separate names with a comma.
