A right circular cylinder tank, having a volume of 44 m3,
contains a saturated mixture of water and steam at 15 MPa. The tank has a
height of 10 m and a wall thickness of 14 cm. The ambient is quiescent air at
35 C and 1 atm. The initial steam quality is 99%. The tank is fully insulated
with negligible heat loss. We now, remove the insulation and let heat loss to
ambient take place from the top and the cylindrical surface. Estimate the value
of the following variables after one hour a) steam pressure, b) steam
temperature, c) wall temperature facing the steam, d) wall temperature facing
