A very simple but approximate equation of state, while not adequate for computation of thermal properties, may, if valid over a wide range, be useful as a concise representation of the mechanical properties of a fluid. In particular it provides a continuous reference with which to compare experimental PVT data for purposes of smoothing, accomplished by examining differences.
