HW 7B-5 - Entropy Change for an Isobaric Heating Process - 4 pts

A piston-and-cylinder device holds 9.7 lbm of water at 250 psia in a volume of 3.6 ft3. Heat is added to the water until the temperature reaches 425oF. During this process, the pressure in the cylinder remains constant because the piston moves freely. Determine the change in the entropy on the water in Btu/oR.
