A rigid, insulated tank that is initially evacuated is connected through a valve to a supply line that carries steam at 4 MPa. Now the valve is opened, and steam is allowed to flow into the tank until the pressure reaches 4 MPa, at which point the valve is closed. If the final temperature of the steam in the tank is 550°C, determine the temperature of the steam in the supply line and the flow work per unit mass of the steam.

Question

A rigid, insulated tank that is initially evacuated is
connected through a valve to a supply line that carries steam
at 4 MPa. Now the valve is opened, and steam is allowed to
flow into the tank until the pressure reaches 4 MPa, at which
point the valve is closed. If the final temperature of the steam
in the tank is 550°C, determine the temperature of the steam
in the supply line and the flow work per unit mass of the
steam.
