1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given: A sealed, rigid container (cannot change shape or size) containing steam at the shown conditions has heat added until it reaches the final shown state.

Determine: a) heat added, b) work performed, c) change in internal energy of the system, and d) final system pressure

2. Relevant equations

Q = W + Δu

Also given: T1= 200 deg C, mass = 10kg, volume = 1m^3 (for initial conditions)
T2 = 350 C (for final conditions)

The pressures I found in the thermo tables for the corresponding temperatures are:
P1 = 1554.9 KPa
P2 = 16529 KPa

3. The attempt at a solution

What I know is it's a saturated vapor system since it stated steam in the problem statement and closed system so no work is done.

From that I was able to answer b) W = 0 and c) Q = 0 + m(u1-u2) --> 10Kg(2594.2-2418.3) KJ/kg = 1759 KJ of internal energy. The u's I got from thermo tables.

The two I'm having a hard time with is a) the heat added to the system and d) final system pressure.

You already found the answer to a. Look at what you put for c. You also already found the final pressure.

Also I can tell the quality is not going to be 100%. You can use the volume and mass to find the specific volume. Than use that specific volume and the specific volumes from the table for state 1 and 2 to find the quality.
