Historical development of the vapor pressure equation from dalton to antoine

  • Jaime Wisniak
General Interest

Abstract

The vapor pressure of a pure liquid or of a solution is a property that has been observed since antiquity. Here, we trace the different equations that have been suggested to describe the variation of the vapor pressure with the temperature, until the time when Antoine proposed his equation, a functionality that has survived the test of time and is the one mostly widely used today.
