Saturated Steam Tables - General Question

  1. Dec 8, 2008 #1
    Are "saturated steam tables" calculated or are the saturated values of Pressure, Volume and Temperature determined experimentally?

    They are determined experimentally. There are now mathematical models used to generate the steam tables but originally they were determined by experiment.
