Calculation of Fugacity Coefficients

Calculation of the fugacity coefficient using eqn [5] or eqn [6] requires knowledge of the P-V-T-x behaviour of the system. This information is obtained from an equation of state. Two representative types of equation of state will be discussed below - a volume-explicit virial equation and a pressure-explicit cubic equation. A more detailed discussion of types of equation of state is available elsewhere (see Further Reading).

Volume-explicit Virial Equation

Virial equations of state are infinite-series expansions of the compressibility Z as a function either of the density or pressure. The pressure series may be written as:

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
