Comparison of methods for calculating third virial coefficients: Application to binary mixtures of CO2 with N2, CH4, and C2H6 Academic Article uri icon


  • Several methods for calculating cross third virial coefficients are compared using experimental data for the systems N2+CO2, CH4+CO2, and C2H6+CO2. The methods considered are: ideal solution, geometric mean, Orbey and Vera, Lennard-Jones, MHEMHS, and algebraic determination using two mixture third virial coefficients. The calculated values are compared with cross virials determined from experimental data for the three systems. © 1989.
