AbstractABSTRACT:- A single equation of state (EOS) such as Soave – Redlich Kwong EOS can accurately describe both the liquid and vapour phase, therefore it is used for binary systems to predict some physical and thermodynamical properties. Two methods, which are Soave- Redlich Kwong and Generalized Compressibility Factor Correlation are compared and adopted for the cubic equation of state to calculate molar volume, density, viscosity, thermal conductivity, specific heat and compressibility factor.
In this paper a computer program is developed requiring critical properties to perform these calculations. The results are compared with some available literature data, and we find that the computer programs are shown to be adequately reliable for this purpose, with deviation in some properties equal to (3.6%) as other predictive programs and procedures. Also from this comparison we notice that the Generalized Compressibility Factor Correlation method is better and more general than the Soave- Redlich Kwong.
Keywords: equation of state; prediction of physical & thermodynamic properties; binary mixtures.
