##### Reference no: EM13708178

Water as a saturated vapor at 600 Â°F is contained in a piston-cylinder device that has an initial volume of 30 ft3. The device undergoes a constant temperature process, until the water reaches the saturated liquid condition. Draw and label the states and process on a P-v diagram. Determine the work and specific heat transfer of this process (BTU).
