Unformatted text preview: Physics 212A Homework #9 Name: 1. The web site http://webbook.nist.gov/chemistry/fluid/ has thermodynamic data for many fluids and gases. a) Select Xenon as the species, choose saturation properties, temperature increments , and download the data . Use either Import or the ReadSpreadSheet function from the MathematicaHandbook to read the file into a Mathematica list. Take and Transpose are helpful in extracting the relevant columns from the table. Construct a plot of the vapor pressure of Xenon as a function of temperature in the range 165<T<289 K b) The vapor pressure of a fluid approximately follows an equation of the form Pvap=P0 - L T where T is the absolute temperature and L is approximately the latent heat of vaporization. Find the best fit values of P0 and L for the data of part a) using either FindFit or NonlinearModelFit. Construct a plot which compares your fit with the data. Using the Handbook package : xdata = ReadSpreadSheet @ "C:\\DownloadTrash \\fluid.txt" D ; Temperature H K L Pressure H MPa L Density H l mol l L Volume 165.00 0.10103 22.410 0.044622- 0.0068259- 0.0023179- 0.013965 21.814 166.00 0.10696 22.360 0.044723 0.037624 0.042408 0.25468 21.747 167.00 0.11316 22.309 0.044826 0.082102 0.087174 0.52188 21.680 168.00 0.11963 22.257 0.044929 0.12661 0.13198 0.78766 21.615 169.00 0.12638 22.206 0.045033 0.17114 0.17684 1.0521 21.550 170.00 0.13343 22.155 0.045137 0.21571 0.22174 1.3151 21.486 171.00 0.14076 22.103 0.045243 0.26032 0.26669 1.5768 21.422 172.00 0.14841 22.051 0.045349 0.30496 0.31169 1.8372 21.360 173.00 0.15637 21.999 0.045456 0.34964 0.35675 2.0963 21.298 174.00 0.16464 21.947 0.045564 0.39436 0.40186 2.3541 21.237 175.00 0.17325 21.895 0.045673 0.43912 0.44703 2.6107 21.176 176.00 0.18220 21.842 0.045783 0.48393 0.49227 2.8662 21.116 177.00 0.19149 21.789 0.045894 0.52878 0.53757 3.1204 21.057 178.00 0.20114 21.737 0.046005 0.57368 0.58293 3.3735 20.999 179.00 0.21115 21.683 0.046118 0.61863 0.62837 3.6254 20.941 180.00 0.22153 21.630 0.046232 0.66364 0.67388 3.8763 20.884 181.00 0.23230 21.577 0.046346 0.70869 0.71946 4.1261 20.828 182.00 0.24345 21.523 0.046462 0.75381 0.76512 4.3748 20.772 183.00 0.25500 21.469 0.046579 0.79898 0.81085 4.6225 20.717 Read 125 Records arranged in 25 columns extract the temp and pressure columns : 8 temp, press < = Take @ Transpose @ xdata D , 2 D 88 165., 166., 167., 168., 169., 170., 171., 172., 173., 174., 175., 176., 177., 178., 179., 180., 181., 182., 183., 184., 185., 186., 187., 188., 189., 190., 191., 192., 193., 194., 195., 196., 197., 198., 199., 200., 201., 202., 203., 204., 205., 206., 207., 208., 209., 210., 211., 212., 213., 214., 215., 216., 217., 218., 219., 220., 221., 222., 223., 224., 225., 226., 227., 228., 229., 230., 231., 232., 233., 234., 235., 236., 237., 238., 239., 240., 241., 242., 243., 244., 245., 246., 247., 248., 249., 250., 251., 252., 253., 254., 255., 256., 257., 258., 259., 260., 261., 262., 263., 264., 265., 266., 267., 268., 269., 270., 271., 272., 273., 274., 275., 276.,263....
