Measurement of Isochoric P—V—T Behavior of a Nominal 95-Mol.%-Methane—5-Mol.%-Propane Mixture from Near-Ambient to Cryogenic Temperatures
An isochoric P—V—T apparatus which has been used to investigate the P—V—T surfaces of methane , ethane , and propane has been modified for this work in studying a mixture containing 5.31 mol.% propane in methane. To the approximation allowed in gas mixture preparation techniques and the Pitzer—Curl corresponding states principle this mixture was prepared to describe the P—V—T surface of the average mixture composition studied calorimetrically by Manker et al.  and Mather et al. . Their average mixture composition is presented in Table I.
