## Van der Waals and Density Dependent Mixing Rules

As described above, the basic approach of van der Waals mixing rules is in Eqs. (5-2.2) and (5-2.4), while density-dependent mixing rules add functions to the van der Waals expressions. The simplest justification of the van der Waals concept is to match the composition dependence of the second virial coefficient from an EoS model to the rigorous relationship (5-4.2a). For the general cubic equation of Eq. (4-6.1), and therefore all of the models of Tables 4-6 and 4-7, this is (Abbott, 1979)

## Diffusion Coefficients At Infinite Dilution

For a binary mixture of solute A in solvent B, the diffusion coefficient D AB of A diffusing in an infinitely dilute solution of A in B implies that each A molecule is in an environment of essentially pure B. In engineering work, however, D AB is assumed to be a representative diffusion coefficient even for concentrations of A of 5 to 10 mole . In this section, several estimation methods for D AB are introduced the effect of concentration for mutual diffusion coefficients is covered in Sec....

## EoS Models for the Near Critical Region

Conditions near the vapor-liquid critical point of a substance show significantly different behavior from simple extrapolations of the EoS models described so far in this chapter. The shape of the critical isotherm, the variations of CV, the isothermal compressibility, and other properties and the vapor-liquid coexistence curve are all different than that given by most EoS models. This is because the molecular correlations are much longer ranged and fluctuate differently in this region. The...

## Liquid Mixture Viscosity

Essentially all correlations for liquid mixture viscosity refer to solutions of liquids below or only slightly above their normal boiling points i.e., they are restricted to reduced temperatures of the pure components below about 0.7. The bulk of the discussion below is limited to that temperature range. At the end of the section, however, we suggest approximate methods to treat high-pressure, high-temperature liquid mixture viscosity. At temperatures below Tr 0.7, liquid viscosities are very...

## Aqueous Solutions Of Electrolytes

Physical chemists have given much attention to aqueous mixtures containing solutes that ionize either completely e.g., strong salts like sodium chloride or partially e.g., sulfur dioxide and acetic acid . The thermodynamics of such mixtures is discussed in numerous references, but the most useful general discussions are by Pitzer, 1995 and by Robinson and Stokes, 1959 . Helpful surveys are given by Pitzer, 1977, 1980 , Rafal, 1994 , and Zemaitis, 1986 . Unfortunately, however, these discussions...

## BWR and MBWR Models

The BWR expressions are based on the pioneering work of Benedict, Webb and Rubin 1940, 1942 who combined polynomials in temperature with power series and exponentials of density into an eight-parameter form. Additional terms and parameters were later introduced by others to formulate modified Benedict-Webb-Rubin MBWR EoS. The general form of BWR MBWR correlations is the T-dependent functions f T can contain more than 30 parameters in addition to m, n, a, and y. Until very recently, this...

## Heat Capacities Of Real Gases

The heat capacities of ideal gases have been discussed in Chap. 3. In this section we discuss the behavior of real gases, including methods for estimating their behavior using equations of state. The focus is on the constant pressure heat capacity, Cp dH dT p, since it is normally obtained from calorimetric measurements and tabulated. The constant volume heat capacity, Cv dU dT V, is also of interest and the two are related by the thermodynamic equation Equation 6-5.1 shows that the difference...

## Solubility of Gases

At modest pressures, most gases are only sparingly soluble in typical liquids. For example, at 25 C and a partial pressure of 1.01 bar, the mole fraction solubility of nitrogen in cyclohexane is x 7.6 X 10 4 and that in water is x 0.18 X 10 4. Although there are some exceptions notably, hydrogen , the solubility of a gas in typical solvents usually falls with rising temperature. However, at higher temperatures, approaching the critical temperature of the solvent, the solubility of a gas usually...

## Dipole Moments

Dipole moments of molecules are often required in property correlations for polar materials such as for virial coefficients Chap. 4 and viscosities Chap. 9 . The best sources of this constant are the compilations by McClellan 1963 and Nelson, et al. 1967 . There also is a large number of values in the compilation of Lide 1996 . For the rare occasions when an estimated value is needed, vector group contribution methods such as summarized by Minkin, et al. 1970 can be used. In addition, all of...

## Excess Free Energy GE Mixing Rules

As discussed above, to treat more complex solutions, mixing rules based on expressions more appropriate for the composition dependence of liquids have been developed, especially for phase equilibrium calculations. The first widely recognized analysis of this approach was by Huron and Vidal 1979 . Since that time, a very large literature has arisen with many different expressions reviews have been given, for example, by Orbey 1994 , Orbey and Sandler 1995 , Kalospiros, et al. 1995 , and...

## Phase Envelope Construction Dew and Bubble Point Calculations

Phase-equilibrium calculations at low pressures are normally easy, but high-pressure calculations can be complicated by both trivial-root and convergence difficulties. Trivial-root problems can be avoided by starting computations at a low pressure and marching toward the critical point in small increments of temperature or pressure. When the initial guess of each calculation is the result of a previous calculation, trivial roots are avoided. Convergence difficulties are avoided if one does dew...

In Eq. 9-4.2 , a is like a molecular diameter and is the value of r that causes r to be zero. With this potential, the collision integral has...

Values of A, B, and C are tabulated for a number of materials in Appendix A with Pvp in bars and T in K....

## Estimation Methods

Since the properties of most of the species treated in this chapter are for ideal gases, intermolecular forces play no role in their estimation and, as a result, the law of corresponding states is inapplicable. Rather, AH T , S T , AG f T , and Cp T are estimated from schemes related to the molecular structure of the compound. Benson 1968 and Benson and Buss 1969 have pointed out a hierarchy of such methods. The most simple methods would use contributions based on the atoms present in the...

## Additive Methods

Schroeder Partington, 1949 suggested a simple additive method for estimating molar volumes at the normal boiling point. His rule is to count the number of atoms of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, add one for each double bond, two for each triple bond and multiply the sum by seven. Schroeder's original rule has been expanded to include halogens, sulfur, and triple bonds. This gives the volume in cubic centimeters per gram mole.

## Determination Of Activity Coefficients

As discussed in Secs. 8-5 and 8-6, activity coefficients in binary liquid mixtures can often be estimated from a few experimental vapor-liquid equilibrium data for the mixtures by using some empirical or semiempirical excess function, as shown in Table 8-3. The excess functions provide a thermodynamically consistent method for interpolating and extrapolating limited binary experimental mixture data and for extending binary data to multicomponent mixtures. Frequently, however, few or no mixture...

## Fugacity Of A Pure Liquid

To calculate the fugacity of a pure liquid at a specified temperature and pressure, we may use an equation of state capable of representing the liquid phase and first calculate L See Chap. 6 and then use Eq. 8-2.2b .

Unless the pressure is very large, it is the vapor...

The first is based on Eq. 7-2.1 and requires finding dPvpldTfrom a vapor-pressure-temperature correlation Sec. 7-8 . A separate estimate of AZv must be made before AHv can be obtained. This procedure can give results as accurate as those measured...

In Chap. 5, emphasis was placed upon the estimation of pseudocritical constants for mixtures.

Estimation techniques for the latter can be evaluated by comparison with experimental data. A summary of experimental values is given by Hicks and Young 1975...
