Balan et al. (1991) present an empirical equation for the

enthalpy of saturated steam vapor:

H T g x T

484 836273 3 741550922 1 3426566 10

97 21546936 6

3 2 .. .

. (47 3 1 435427715 1 0085 1 2 . ) . (. ) T / T

The enthalpy is in (kJ/kg) and the temperature, T, is in

degrees K.

Write a MATLAB ® script to compare the results predicted by

this equation to those for saturated steam from a set of steam

tables (see Table A.4.2).
