An electric generating plant boils water to produce high pressure steam. The steam spins a turbine that is connected to the generator.

a) how many liters of water must be boiled to fill a 5.0 m^3 boiler with steam at 50 atm and 400 degrees Celsius.

b) The steam has dropped to 2.0 atm at 150 degrees Celsius as it exits the turbine. How much volume does it now occupy?

2. Relevant equations

pv=nRT (not sure...but think you have to use some sort of ideal gas equation)

3. The attempt at a solution

Can you somehow find moles of the steam and then convert that to the liquid state somehow... do you use stochiometry?
