    Sorry for the template not being present, when I use my phone it doesn't show up. I am trying the problem about liquefying liquid nitrogen, and I am having my first problem finding the latent heat of vaporization at 280.6 K. I try using trouton's rule, and I get a domain error because the inside is negative with a power of 0.38.

    I can't really tell if my drawing is right, I am assuming that the order in which it enters the system is a throttle valve, then a heat exchanger. Some vapor leaves the system, which is the combined throttle valve and heat exchanger, before entering the heat exchanger. Then, the rest goes through the heat exchanger.

    Here is a new attempt, this time I made the inlet condition the reference. I am still stuck about the vaporization enthalpy using troutons rule and getting a negative number due to the reduced temperature being greater than unity
