I have a doubt regarding gibbs phase rule in thermodynamics.. It says the number of independent intensive properties required to specify the state of a system is F=C-P+2 where C is number of components and P is the number of phase.. So for a water and water vapour system, C=1, P=2 . So F=1. If we specify the temperature,pressure is fixed. But inorder to completely fix the state of the system, the dryness fraction should also be known. As the dryness fraction determines specific volume of the system. So 2 variables are required, which is not correct according to Gibbs phase rule. Am i making any mistake in this? Please help(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
