Understanding the Basic Properties of Water and Steam
- Define temperature
- Define heat
- Explain the difference between temperature and heat
- Define enthalpy
- Describe the relationship between the latent heat of fusion and changing the state of water from a solid to a liquid
- Describe the relationship between the latent heat of vaporization and changing the state of water from a liquid to a gas
- Discuss how pressure affects the boiling point of water
Water and steam are used extensively in industrial plants to transfer energy from one substance to another or one location to another. Understanding water and steam properties, terms, and principles is needed to effectively and efficiently operate those industrial plant systems that rely on the energy in water and steam to function correctly.
The Basic Principles of Water and Steam training course describes water's properties in liquid, solid, and gaseous states. It also details how heat and pressure effect changes between these states.
This online course explains how to calculate quality and moisture content given the weights of steam and liquid water. It also outlines the relationship of subcooled liquid, saturated liquid, saturated steam, latent vaporization heat, and superheated steam on a provided temperature/enthalpy diagram.
This course covers:
- Temperature and heat
- Latent heat
- Natural circulation versus pressure
Basic Principles of Water and Steam is part of the Heat Rate Optimization training series.
