ME 201 Thermodynamics 1 ME 201 Thermodynamics Compressible Substance Property Evaluation Guide Substances that are undergoing a phase change or have the potential to undergo a phase change must be considered compressible substances. Occasionally, we can identify these types of substances by clue words that are used, such as: boiling, condensation, steam, saturated, vapor, water, and refrigerant. Properties for compressible substances must be obtained form tabular data. Normally, the property data is organized into four tables Saturation Pressure Table Saturation Temperature Table Superheated Vapor Table Compressed Liquid Table In order to use the correct table, it is essential that the fluid phase be identified. We recognize five fluid phases Subcooled or Compressed Liquid Saturated Liquid Two Phase Mixture with a quality, x, given as the fraction of vapor in the mixture Saturated Vapor Superheated Vapor
