Recall that heat can be calculated using the following equation:

$\overline{){\mathbf{Q}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{mC}}{\mathbf{\u2206}}{\mathbf{T}}}$

where

m = mass

C = heat capacity

ΔT = change in temperature = T_{f }– T_{i}

Water, initially saturated vapor at 4 bar, fills a closed, rigid container. The water is heated until its temperature is 400 degrees celsius. For the water, determine the heat transfer, in kJ/Kg. Kinetic energy and potential energy effects can be ignored.
