Homework Help: Mechanical Engineering - Thermodynamics - rigid container

  1. Jul 12, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    So part A is correct. I'm completely stumped for part B. I feel like not enough information is given. All I know is the temperature. I tried using ratios but it didn't give me the right answer. How am I supposed to look stuff up in tables when I'm only given T?

    Nevermind. I guess they just wanted me to assume that the water would still occupy the entire volume. Weird assumption but it worked.
