# PVT Behavior of Fluids and the Theorem of Corresponding States

Compressibility Factor
The volumetric PVT behavior of a material is often characterized by
the compressibility factor Z
PV
PV
Z

NRT RT
Typical values: ideal gas, Z = 1.0; liquids, Z ~ 0.01 to 0.2;
critical point, Zc ~ 0.27 to 0.29
Theorem of Corresponding States
This theorem suggests that values of thermodynamic properties of
different fluids can be compared when properties are normalized by
their values at the critical point
Z f Z c , Tr , Pr

## PVT Behavior of Fluids and the Theorem of Corresponding States

Theorem of Corresponding States
The reduced temperature and
pressure are simply
Tr T Tc and Pr P Pc
If Zc is assumed to be a
constant for all materials
Z f Tr , Pr
Experimental observations
provide strong evidence to
support this approach
The relation above indicates that all fluids have the same reduced
volume Vr (as well as other properties) at a specified Tr and Pr
In Example 7.2 the principle of corresponding states was used to
relate the a and b constants of the van der Waals equation of state to
a fluids critical properties, specifically Tc and Pc

## PVT Behavior of Fluids and the Theorem of Corresponding States

Generalized Coexistence Curve
The theorem of corresponding states can be used to obtain a
generalized phase diagram
Law of rectilinear diameters states that the average density in
the L-V region varies linearly over a wide temperature range below
the critical point
Zeno line the Z = 1.0 line on
the phase diagram
For states with Z > 1.0 (hard fluid),
repulsive forces dominate and
conversely, for states where
Z < 1.0 (soft fluid) attractive forces
are dominant

## PVT Behavior of Fluids and the Theorem of Corresponding States

Acentric Factor
To improve the accuracy of property predictions, Pitzer and
coworkers introduced the acentric factor as a third correlating
parameter
Z Z 0 Tr , Pr Z 1 Tr , Pr
The acentric factor was developed
as a measure of the difference in
structure between the material of
interest and a spherically symmetric
gas such as argon
Therefore, the parameter is related
to a molecular property
The parameter is defined using the
reduced vapor pressure

## PVTN Equations of State for Fluids

Overview
Although the corresponding states correlations are useful, the data
is displayed in charts and graphs are therefore cumbersome to use
A more useful means to express a fluids PVT behavior is through an
analytical expression (PVT equation of state)
Two general approaches
Statistical mechanical models based on rigorous theoretical
principles accounting for the interactions between molecules
(preferred by physicists and physical chemists)
Empirical expressions models formulated by determining
parameters in a mathematical expression through a fit to
experimental data (preferred by chemical engineers)

## PVTN Equations of State for Fluids

Relating EOS Parameters to Experimental Data
Empirical models have parameters that must be determined to
calculate PVT data
A common way to determine these parameters is to relate the model
parameters to a fluids critical properties
By adopting this approach we are utilizing the theorem of
corresponding states
The critical point criteria for a single-component system require

## Evaluating Changes in Properties Using Departure Functions

Overview
We now develop methods for determining changes in derived
thermodynamic properties of a pure substance
Because properties are state functions, we can choose any
convenient path to calculate the change in the property of interest
(e.g., H, S, U, A, or G)
constitutive relationships
1. A PVT or PVTN equation of state (EOS)
2. An ideal-gas state heat capacity equation

## Evaluating Changes in Properties Using Departure Functions

Convenient Path
To calculate property changes between two well-defined states
(T1,P1,V1) and (T2,P2,V2) we use the following three-step process
1. Isothermal expansion at T1 from P = P1 to 0 (or V = V1 to
2. Isobaric (or isochoric) heating from T1 to T2 in an attenuated
ideal gas state [P = 0 (or V = )]
3. Isothermal compression at T2 from P = 0 to P2
(or from V = to V2)

## Evaluating Changes in Properties Using Departure Functions

Convenient Path
The total property change between states 1 and 2, B (where B is
one of H, S, U, A, or G), is the sum over these three steps
B B T2 , P2 ,V2 B T1 , P1 ,V1

B T1 , P 0,V B T1 , P1 ,V1

B T2 , P 0,V B T1 , P 0,V
B T2 , P2 ,V2 B T2 , P 0,V

step (1)
step (2)
step (3)

## Step (2) occurs entirely within the ideal-gas state

Recall that only 2 of the 3 intensive variables T, P, and V are
independent
We select T as one independent variable and choose P or V based on
the PVT EOS we have
If we have a pressure-explicit EOS (P = f (T,V)), we choose V
If we have a volume-explicit EOS (V = f (T,P)), we choose P

## Evaluating Changes in Properties Using Departure Functions

Departure (Residual) Functions
A departure function is the difference between the property of
interest in its real state at a specified T, P, and V and in an idealgas state at the same temperature T and pressure P
There are two equivalent forms of the departure function
B T , P B ideal gas T , P B T , P B o T , P

B T ,V B ideal gas T ,V o B T ,V B o T ,V o
B is any derived property (H, S, U, A, or G) and Vo = RT / P(T,V)

When working with pressure-explicit EOSs, the departure function
for the Hemlholtz energy is particularly useful
The differential expression for A is

Integrating at constant T between A(T,V) and A(T,) gives
V

## To obtain the departure function, we must also account for the

change from V to V = Vo, which occurs in the ideal-gas state

## Evaluating Changes in Properties Using Departure Functions

General Relationships Between Cv and Cp
Using the formalism introduced in Chapter 5 one can obtain the
following relationship between Cv and Cp
TV 2p
C p Cv
T
The above expression is completely general and therefore can be
used to relate heat capacities for real or ideal gases as well as for
liquids and solids
Recalling the definitions of T and p, the expression above can
equivalently be written as
P T V2
C p Cv T
P V T

## Compressibility and Heat Capacity of Solids

Incompressible Substances
Most solids and many liquids far below their critical temperatures
have very low compressibilities
In these situations one can assume perfectly or nearly
incompressible behavior as a first-order approximation
An incompressible substance is defined as having a constant
volume (V = constant) independent of T and P
From this definition, it follows that p = T = 0 for an
incompressible substance
For a nearly incompressible substance the following expressions are
appropriate (for a perfectly incompressible substance, the
approximation becomes a true equality)

## Derived Property Representations

Overview
Before the infusion of computers, charts or tubular data were used
widely for engineering problem solving
Although computer-generated representations of thermodynamic
properties are preferred, many graphical forms of data are still used
in engineering practice
The temperature-entropy (T-S) diagram for water is a good example
