ME 201 Thermodynamics 1 ME 201 Thermodynamics Use of Compressible Substance Tables for the Evaluation of Incompressible Substance Properties Guide When a substance that has been identified as an incompressible substance, say subcooled liquid water, has compressible substance property tables, it is possible to use these tables to evaluate the properties of the incompressible substance. We know that for an incompressible substance v, u, and s depend only on temperature, so that if we can find a value for these properties at the temperature of interest and any pressure (as long as we have the appropriate phase, liquid or solid), we will accomplish our task of evaluating the property. If we have compressible substance tables available for the substance of interest, then clearly the saturated liquid values and saturated solid values can be used. That is For Incompressible Liquids For Incompressible Solids v = v f (at T given ) v = v i (at T given ) u = u f (at T given ) u = u i (at T given
