Abstract

A new correlation has been developed for ideal isobaric heat capacity for natural gases. It is applicable over the temperature ranges of 32 ≤ T°F ≤ 2240 and 32 ≤ T°F ≤ 300 for sweet and sour gases respectively. In addition a new generalized mathematical correlation was developed for the isobaric heat capacity departures, for such gases, which is applicable over the range of variables 0.2 ≤ Pr ≤ 15 and 1.05 ≤ Tr ≤ 3.0. This latter correlation is based on a reduced form of the BWR equation of state. Both correlations are adaptable to computer application. Comparisons with data from the literature are presented and discussed.
