Determine Compressibility factor, Z Factor

Equation of state Any equation correlating P,V, n and T is called an equation of state. Let start started with ideal gas law: PV=nRT. Where: P= absolute Pressure. V= Volume. n=  Numbers of mols of gas. T= absolute Temperature. R= Constant named “universal gas contant”. This law is mixture of the old boyle’s Law and…
