1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Saturated liquid water contained in a closed, rigid tank is cooled to a final state where the temperature is 50 degrees C and the masses of saturated vapor and liquid present are 0.03 and 1999.97 kg, respectively. Determine the heat transfer for the process, in kJ.

2. Relevant equations

u = (1-x)u_f + x(u_g)

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, I am able to find the values for all my variables except for the specific internal energy of the initial saturated liquid water. The value can be found on a saturation table but to do so, I need to know either the pressure or the temperature of the water, which is not given in the problem. Any hints on obtaining one these values?

Thanks

lol, I wish it were that easy, but I actually need the pressure or the temp of the saturated liquid before cooling. I am sure the 50 degrees C value is used in some way, direct or indirect, to find one of the numbers I need, but I am not sure how to calculate it.
