What you'll learn

  • How to explain the relationship between energy, temperature, and the phases of water
  • How to describe the concept and importance of latent heat, the heat associated with phase changes of water without a temperature change
  • Given the weights of both steam and liquid water in a vesselHow to calculate quality and moisture content
  • How to explain the relationship of a subcooled liquid, saturated liquid, saturated steam, latent heat of vaporization, and superheated steam on a provided temperature/enthalpy diagram.
Course Description

 At the end of this lesson, you will be able to state the primary parameter that cause heat transfer. You will be able to explain the three types of heat transfer and the characteristics of them. You will also be able to describe conditions and problems that negatively affect proper heat transfer. Finally, you will be able to determine heat transfer rate given operating parameters in heat transfer equipment. • Define heat transfer • State the parameter that causes heat transfer • Explain the three forms of heat transfer • List problems that can hinder proper heat transfer in equipment designed to transfer heat • Given operating parameters in heat transfer equipment and calculate the rate of heat transfer
