Example 13-1 Water at 70°F and 40 psia enters a long tube with a velocity of 1.4 ft/s. The outside of the tube is heated uniformly with a heat flux per unit surface area of 50,000 Btu/h·ft 2 . At distance L 1 along the tube, the water begins to boil. At L 2 , a two-phase mixture of water and steam exits with a quality of 0.3. Pressure may be assumed to be constant along the tube, which has a diameter of 2 in. Determine a) temperature, T 2 , at the point where the water begins to boil b) temperature, T 3 , at the tube exit c) the length L 1 d) the length L 2 Solution a) At point 2, the liquid is saturated, o 2 temperature(water, 40, 0) 267 F TP x == = = b) Point 3 is at the same pressure as point 2 and both are in the two-phase region, therefore
