Enthalpy
A combination property
o Extensive: H = U + PV ( KJ)
o Intensive: h = u + Pv (KJ/Kg)
For a given pressure, the latent heat of vaporization is the enthalpy difference:
o    
o This is the amount of energy required to vaporize one kg of substance
Mass Quality
Ratio of mass vapor to total mass of mixture


o Will = 0 if the substance is a saturated liquid
o Will = 1 if the substance is a saturated vapor
Saturated Mixture
Includes the mass of the liquid and the vapor

X is equal to the quality of a mixture
Any intensive property can replace v, so that we have a formula we can use to find properties of
a mixture
Example:
A 6L pressure vessel with 1.15 kg of water at 150 degrees Celsius. Find the pressure, the quality, the
enthalpy of the water, and the volume by liquid phase

We know that this is a mixture: in between the specific volumes of saturated water and saturate vapor
at this temperature.
