Homework Help: Thermo

Posted by spencer on Monday, March 15, 2010 at 10:32pm.

one more question:

a worker cleans a railroad car with steam of 15000ft^3 car on inside, t=240F P=14.7psia of steam. the car is closed. the steam inside cools until P=12 psia, at which time salad oil is added to tank. find a. heat transfer from steam during cooling, b. amount of liquid water in bottom of tank car that will dilute the salad oil.

I found the T2 using ideal gas law, using dU=dQ=dW, dw=0 cause no volume change. so would I just look up the values of internal energy change in a table, then what about part b?
