## Homework Statement

Steam at 400oC enters a nozzle with an average velocity of 20 m/s. If the specific volume and the flow area at the inlet are measured as 0.1 m^3/kg and 0.01 m^2 respectively, determine (a) the volume flow rate in m^3/s, and (b) the mass flow rate in kg/s

## Homework Equations

voldot = AV

mdot = (rho)(voldot)

## The Attempt at a Solution

voldot = (0.01m^2)*(20m/s)

= 0.2 m^3/s

mdot = ?*(0.2m^3/s)

I am unsure what to do here. I am given specific volume 0.1 m^3/kg but I need density (kg/m^3) so if specific volume is V/m and density is m/v.. gosh I can't even think straight this late I feel like I'm going to pull some illegal math move and just do the reciprocal of specific volume to get density..
