Hi. I was wondering if you could answer my question or point me in a direction. I am interested in working with steam engines. I have a boiler, and I know the pressure (in PSI), volume (in CFM), and temperature (F) of the steam coming from my boiler. I would like to have a formula which tells me how to convert this information into WATTS. I will use this steam to power a steam engine, and run a generator. So, if I know the power of the steam in watts, I can determine the efficiency of the engine. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you, David
