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. Homework 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.
