1/27/11 Estimating z values The book has 4 general compressibility charts. Figure 5.4-1 (shown on previous slide) is the most general Figures 5.4-2, 5.4-3, and 5.4-4 are expansions of various regions of 5.4- 1 To fully understand these charts we must introduce the parameter

1/27/11 Estimating z with compressibility charts 1. Look up the critical temperature and pressure 2. If the gas is either hydrogen or helium, determine the adjusted critical constants with Newton’s correction (empirically derived) Tac = Tc + 8K Pac = Pc + 8 atm 3. Calculate reduced values of the two
1/27/11 Example One hundred gram-moles of nitrogen are contained in a 5-liter vessel at -20.6˚C. Estimate the pressure in the cylinder using the compressibility factor EOS.
