In this Unit you will learn how to read from the property tables by making use of the Steam table as an example. The same principle will apply when using the respective property tables for other pure substances. It is important for you to understand fully the use of steam tables, as they constitute the main pillar in the foundation of Thermodynamics for Engineers.The Ideal-gas equation of state and other well-known equations of state are discussed in the second part of the unit. The compressibility factor, which accounts for deviation of gases from ideal-behaviour, is also discussed. A good grasp of the previous units and an excellent knowledge of Mathematics are essential pre-requisites for the complete understanding of the unit.3.1LEARNING OBJECTIVESBy the end of this unit, you will be able to do the following:Read and use property tables as required.Calculate
