4 psia and intake temperature, and the actual compressor capacity must be referred to these conditions before computing the final horsepower. 38) Since the isothermal cycle is based on no temperature change during compression, heat is removed continuously as generated, and there is theoretically no gain by multiple staging. Therefore, Eq. 39) COMPRESSIBILITY CORRECTION In the preceding equations a correction is indicated for deviation from the perfect gas laws—the compressibility. This involves the determination of compressibility at both intake and discharge conditions.
38. 28) PSEUDO-CRITICAL CONDITIONS AND COMPRESSIBILITY Mention has been made of reduced pressure and reduced temperature under the discussion of compressibility. Generalized compressibility curves on this basis are given in Appendix A. They are also applicable to mixtures—for approximations, at least. For a more rigorous treatment, texts such as Ried, et al.  should be consulted. It is necessary to figure mixture pseudo-critical pressure and temperature conditions to be used in calculating the pseudo-reduced conditions to be used in entering the charts.
Wt. 84. 17 17 SPECIFIC GRAVITY AND PARTIAL PRESSURE Normally, specific gravity for gases is a ratio of the lb/ft3 of the gas involved to the lb/ft3 of air, both at SPT conditions. Considering a mole of each gas, the volumes are the same and the weight of each volume is the same as the molecular weight. 512. 24) Thus, in a mixture of 15 mol at 15 psia total pressure containing 2 mol of hydrogen, the partial pressure of the hydrogen would be 2/15 of 15 psia, or 2 psia. Volume fractions, if available, may be used in place of mole fractions here.
