How to Obtain Data From Tables

In the previous lesson, we discussed the relationships between pressure, temperature and volume. We focused on understanding the nature of phases and phase changes by studying phase diagrams. Now, we will turn our attention to determining pressure, volume, temperature and other properties from tables of thermodynamic data.
In this lesson, we will study all three parts of a typical set of thermodynamic tables.

Saturation Temperature Tables

Saturation Pressure Tables

Subcooled Liquid Tables

Superheated Vapor Tables

We will only consider water in this lesson, but thermodynamic tables for ammonia and the refrigerant R-134a are also provided in the LT Advantage Bonus Materials.
