Critical pressures and temperatures for many gases are given in Appendix A. 12 15 GAS MIXTURES Mixtures can be considered as equivalent ideal gases. Although this is not strictly true, it is satisfactory for the present purposes. Many mixtures handled by compressors contain from 2 to 10 separate components. It is necessary to determine as closely as possible many properties of these as equivalent gases. 13 Specific volume Density Volume and mole percent Molecular weight Specific gravity Partial pressure Ratio of specific heats (k) Pseudo-reduced pressure Pseudo-reduced temperature Compressibility Gas constant Specific heats THE MOLE The mole is particularly useful when working with gas mixtures.
2 shows the compression stroke, the piston having moved to the left, reducing the original volume of air with an accompanying rise in pressure. Valves remain closed. The p–V diagram shows compression from point 1 to point 2, and the pressure inside the cylinder has reached that in the receiver. 3 shows the piston completing the delivery stroke. The discharge valves opened just beyond point 2. Compressed air is flowing out through the discharge valves to the receiver. After the piston reaches point 3, the discharge valves will close, leaving the clearance space filled with air at discharge pressure.
7 GAS AND VAPOR By definition, a gas is a fluid having neither independent shape nor form, tending to expand indefinitely. A vapor is a gasified liquid or solid, a substance in gaseous form. These definitions are in general use today. All gases can be liquefied under suitable pressure and temperature conditions and therefore could also be called vapors. The term gas is more generally used when conditions are such that a return to the liquid state (condensation) would be difficult within the scope of the operations being considered.
