Our steam calculator tool helps you accurately determine the properties of steam based on your input parameters such as pressure and temperature.

## Steam Calculator

Enter the mass of the water, the desired temperature rise, and the system efficiency to calculate the energy required to generate steam.

### How to Use the Steam Calculator

- Enter the mass of the water in kilograms.
- Enter the degrees Celsius by which you want the temperature of the water to rise.
- Adjust the efficiency percentage as needed (default is set to 100%).
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the result in kilowatt-hours (kWh).

### How the Calculator Computes Results

The calculator uses the formula (q = m cdot c cdot Delta{T}/eta) to calculate the energy required, where:

- (q) is the energy required in kilowatt-hours.
- (m) is the mass of water in kilograms.
- (c) is the specific heat capacity of water (4.186 J/g°C).
- (Delta{T}) is the temperature rise in degrees Celsius.
- (eta) is the efficiency fraction (e.g., 80% efficiency is 0.8).

To get a result in kilowatt-hours, the energy is then divided by 3,600,000 (the number of Joules in a kWh).

### Limitations of the Calculator

Please note that this calculator assumes that the specific heat capacity of water is constant and does not change with temperature. True specific heat can vary at different temperatures and pressure conditions. For most purposes, the calculator provides a good estimate, but it may not be accurate for precise scientific calculations.
