On the basis of an analysis of data reported in the literature, it has been established that, in calculating certain physical constants of petroleum cuts, it is advisable to use the mokr average boiling point (MABP), which gives the most accurate reflection of the nature of the product.
In place of the graphical methods currently used to calculate the molar average boiling point, we are proposing an analytical expression that can be recommended for engineering calculations.
