Abstract

Although the P-V-T behavior of nitrogen has been studied extensively at temperatures above the critical (126.26°K), no systematic study has yet been reported for the region adjacent to the saturation curve. Van Itterbeek [1,2] has reported measurements at pressures as high as 1500 atm, but restricted to temperatures below 91°K. Benedict [3] has reported a few data points at 90.15° and 123.15°K at pressures from 100 to 1250 atm. Additional experimental data in this region would not only facilitate the calculation of thermodynamic properties for engineering purposes, but also would be of theoretical interest in view of the correlation of nitrogen with other near-spherical and spherical molecules.
