Homework Help: Quality and percent volume

  1. Jan 29, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A rigid container of volume 1 m^3 contains saturated water at 1MPa. If the quality is .10, what is the volume occupied by the vapor.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I wanted to use the equation v=(1-x)(v_l)+x(v_v)

    where all v's are specific volumes bc I can look up the specific vapor and liquid volumes at this temperature. however I don't know the specific volume of the overall system or the total mass so I am kinda stuck can anyone help?
