Thermodynamic Properties of Ordinary Water Substance for Industrial Use

in region 3 of IAPWS-IF97:

Backward Equations: T(p, h) and v(p, h)

Developed by Russian National Committee (RNC) of

International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS).

This calculation page is based on the
