Abstract

Over the range of conditions for which the equation pv = RT represents satisfactorily the p-v-T relation, a table having a single argument, the temperature, serves all the purposes which are served by vapor tables (steam tables, ammonia tables, etc.) having two arguments. A table of this sort with intervals small enough for linear interpolation is presented for dry air. Data from this table are compared with corresponding values from the tables of Sage and Lacey. The use of the table is illustrated with examples of the calculation of processes involved in air compressors, nozzles, internal-combustion engines, and gas turbines.
