# 1000 kg of steam at a pressure of 16 bar.. solved problem

#### 1000 kg of steam at a pressure of 16 bar and 0.9 dry is generated by a boiler per hour. The steam passes through a superheater via boiler stop value where its temperature is raised to 380°C. If the temperature of feed water is 30°C, determine : (i) The total heat supplied to feed water per hour to produce wet steam. (ii) The total heat absorbed per hour in the superheater. Take specific heat for superheated steam as 2.2 kJ/kg K.
