Hello, I have an assignment that centers around the Rankine cycle and requires me to find the enthalpy of water entering the boiler. My professor has told me to take the enthalpy value at boiler conditions for a saturated liquid.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm not really sure why I should make this assumption as I was under the impression that the water reached saturation as it heated over time in the boiler. Therefore, it would not be a saturated liquid just yet as it entered the boiler.

Anyhow, I set out to find the enthalpy of the saturated liquid water using steam tables, but all the steam tables I come across so far only give values for the saturated steam, not liquid. I'm not sure if I'm simply not reading it properly. However, I'm unsure of how to get the value for the enthalpy of a saturated liquid when only the enthalpy of saturated steams are given.

Any help would be appreciated.
