The major part of this book consists of tables of the equilibrium thermodynamic properties of ethylene for both the gas and liquid phases and along the saturation and the melting curves. The limits of the tables are 104K to 320K for pressures up to 270MPa and 320K to 450K for pressures up to 40MPa. The properties listed are volume, entropy, enthalpy, isobaric heat capacity, compression factor, fugacity-pressure ratio, Joule-Thomson coefficient, ratio of heat capacities and speed of sound as functions of pressure and temperature, and pressure entropy, internal energy and isochoric heat capacity as functions of density and temperature. The text, prepared for the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry Thermodynamic Tables Project Centre, gives a critical assessment of the accuracy of all the available experimental data and gives comparisons of the tables with the experimental data. The book is of interest to postgraduate chemical and physical scientists and researchers and industrial chemists specializing in the thermodynamic properties of matter.
