This is an introduction to the fundamentals of thermodynamics from the perspective of continuum mechanics. By describing physical processes in terms of the flow and balance of physical quantities, the book equips readers with a unified approach to hydraulics, electricity, mechanics, and thermodynamics. This highly applications-oriented text contains a wealth of practical diagrams, illustrations, worked examples, and problems.The energy added is equal to the change of enthalpy of the fluid body. ... The entropy of vaporization can be read from the T-S diagram, where the value corresponds to the length of the horizontal section ... The latent entropy I of the phase change can therefore be expressed in terms of the entropies of the liquid and the gas:anbsp;...
