Title: Thermodynamics
1.0 ABSTRACT
Based on the thermodynamics topic, it contains two type of gases which are ideal and real gases.
For ideal, PV = nRT.

## P = pressure, V = volume, n = number of moles, R = ideal gas constant, T = temperature

To understand the behaviour of real gases, the following must be taken into account :-

1) Compressibility effects
2) Variable specific heat capacity
3) Van der Waals forces
4) Non-equilibrium thermodynamics effects
5) Issues with molecular dissociation and elementary reactions with variable composition

The compressibility factor increases with increase of pressure at constant temperature and
it decreases with increase of temperature at constant pressure. For an ideal gas, Z always has a
value of 1. For real gases, the value may deviate positively or negatively, depending on the effect
of the intermolecular forces of the gas. The closer a real gas is to its critical point or to its
saturation point, the larger are the deviations of the gas from ideal behavior.

In this work, discussion about real gases will be dominant because it is variable. Many
researches such as Papay, Beggs, Kumar, Mahmood and Van der Waals have found the
correlation of gas compressibility and the pressure of the gas. Thus, the curves z (compressibility)
versus pressure is difference from each other.

Keywords:
Ideal gases, real gases, gas compressibility.

2.0 INTRODUCTION
In thermodynamics itself, it consists of two type of gases which are ideal and real gases.
For ideal gas, the equation is easy to remember and use, PV=nRT. The ideal gas obeys the Ideal
Gas Law thus its very useful to use. Generally, at higher temperature and lower pressure the gas
will behave ideally. This is because the potential energy and the size of particles become less
significant. The volume will be higher than ideal when the pressure is higher and the pressure
will be lower than ideal when the temperature is lower. The compressibility, z is the deviation
value form the ideal gas behavior.
z = PV/nRT
Gas compressibility or deviation factor (Z-factor) is defined as the ratio of the actual
volume to the ideal volume and is an indication of the gas deviation from ideal behaviour. Some
thermodynamic properties such as density, isothermal compressibility and viscosity can be
calculated by means of Z-factor. [2] The compressibility factor (Z) is a useful thermodynamic
property for modifying the ideal gas law to account for behavior of real gases. It is a measure of
how much the thermodynamic properties of a real gas deviate from those expected of an ideal
gas. It may be thought of as the ratio of the actual volume of a real gas to the volume predicted
by the ideal gas at the same temperature and pressure as the actual volume.
Compressibility factor, z can also be calculated by considering the ratio of molar volume at real
gas to ideal gas.
Z=Vreal/Videal
It is also important parameter for gas engineering calculations. It can be stated that
compressibility factor values of natural gases are required in gas engineering calculations such as
gas metering, gas compression, and design of pipelines.

Problem statement:
How does the theories of the researches differ from each other and how the curve of
compressibility versus pressure will form if different theories applied?

Mahmoud and Van der Waals equation respectively are plotted ,A few steps are done in order to
calculate the compressibility factor of CO2 at varies pressure but at constant temperature ,600K.
The compressibility factor,z is calculated by using Papay, Beggs, Kumar,Mahmoud and Van Der
Waals equation as shown below:

5.0 DISCUSSION
Graph 1 shows the changes in the compressibility factor , Z with the varies of pressure , P
at constant temperature, which is 600 Kelvin for real gas carbon dioxide(CO2).
From the line graph plotted by using Papays equation,, the curve shows that the compressibility
factor, Z decreases with the increase of pressure at constant temperature. The Papays curve
show a descending slope of curve. This is due to the gas behave ideally at high temperature,600K
and at low pressure.However,there is a minimum value of compressibility factor ,z at particular
pressure and fluctuate to a higher value of compressibility factor as the pressure increase.

By using Beggs equation with constant temperature 600K, at low pressure the
compressibility factor value is closer to 1. This indicates a more ideal behaviour in the gas.
Furthermore, the Beggs curve experiences little deviation. The gas behave ideally at high
temperature which is 600K and low pressure. The graph of compressibility factor of carbon
dioxide against pressure shows little deviation from the ideal gass compressibility factor which
is 1.
Besides of that, by using Kumars equation, the carbon dioxide behaves almost similar
what we obtain from Beggs equation.At constant temperature 600K, CO2 behave almost like an
ideal gas and experience less deviation from ideal gas compressibility factor with value 1, as
compared to Papays, Van Der Waals and Mahmouds equation. CO2 behave ideally at high
temperature which is 600K and low pressure.
At constant temperature 600K, Mahmouds equation show CO2 at low pressure, the
compressibility factor value is closer to 1. The Mahmouds curve of compressibility factor of
carbon dioxide against pressure shows little deviation from the ideal gass compressibility factor
which is 1.This indicates a more ideal behaviour in the gas. Furthermore, the Beggs curve
experiences little deviation. The gas behave ideally at high temperature which is 600K and low
pressure.
Based on graph, the Van Der Waals curve show the compressibility factor of carbon
dioxide at varies pressure but at constant temperature, 600K. The graph from Figure 4.1 shows
that the compressibility factor, Z at first surged up to 1.2, then it decreases with the increase of
pressure at constant temperature. However, it fluctuated and increase with the increade of the
pressure.. As the pressure increase, the pV isotherm deviates more and more from perfect
behavior. It show bigger deviation from compressibility factor 1 as the pressure increase.

12
6.0 CONCLUSION
Based on the Papay, Beggs, Kumar, Mahmoud & Van Der Waals equation obtained for real
gas, the closer a real gas is to its critical point or to its saturation point, the larger are the
deviations of the gas from ideal behavior. Compressibility factor of natural gases approach ideal
gas behavior at low pressure and high temperature. At low pressures, It can be seen from the
curves plotted, CO2 almost behave ideally at low pressure at constant temperature 600K.
Hence,the compressibilty factor, Z approaches 1 at low pressure which means that the real
gas behaves much like a perfect gas. Therefore, the compressibility factor of the real gas is
dependence on temperature and pressure.
