The water WILL condense as pressures and temperatures drop, but at the moment the burst diaphram opens... No, no phase change. Steam and "supercritical fluid" may be used interchangably for the purposes of that particular scenario.

Of coarse there is energy, quite alot of kinetic! or does pressure not count... :lol:

Um... Not sure what you are talking about with the whole "kinetic" energy part. The steam is stationary. There is a load of potential and thermal energy though. (No, pressure doesn't count for kinetic energy, because it isn't moving. Pressure is potential energy.)

Wait, you aren't even answering my /question/. I asked if thermal energy was absorbed, when going from supercritical fluid to gas, and you replied with I don't know what...

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
