# Thermodynamics: Unsteady Flow (Charging) Process

I am not sure how to proceed. I do not know Mi or M2, nor do I have enough information to determine the temperature at point two (when the valve is closed). Any help getting me going along will be much appreciated. :)

Hi afpskierx,

Have you find the $u_2$ by doing interpolation? I got the answer for $u_2$ = 3047.35 kJ/kg

At state 1, I don't quite understand with the question which stated that that mass of saturated mixture of water is 12kg.

So, I assume the quality, x = mass of vapour / total mass. You will get 7.2kg for your mass of vapour.

At state 2 (which is the $P_2$ = 400kPa and $T_2$ = 450 C) I assume it SUPERHEATED VAPOUR seems the $T_2$ larger than saturated temperature.

I just can help for what I wrote above. Otherwise, I'll try come out for the full solution later.

What did you use to look up u2? The only thing we know about it is that its quality is one (it is a saturated vapor).

can you PM me your e-mail address? I'll send to you slides for your reference. Thanks :)
