Calculation of Enthalpy Data from a Modified Redlich-Kwong Equation of State

  • G. M. Wilson
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 11)


In a previous paper [1] it was shown that vapor-liquid data could be correlated by means of a modified Redlich-Kwong equation of state. This result was unexpected in view of the simplicity of the equation, compared to other more complex equations which seemed to be necessary for the correlation of this type of data.
