Abstract:

The key elements of the theory of the liquidvapor phase transformations are the phase equilibrium curve pressuretemperature and latent heat of the transformation. To the best of our knowledge, nobody has yet analyzed the latent work of phase transformation. In this report, we try to eliminate this paradoxical gap. Through a generalized methodology, we study the latent heat and latent work of liquidvapor phase transformation for variously constrained thermodynamic processes.
