LP-Flash.

xsl
This spreadsheet performs flash calculations at low pressures and temperatures.
(pressure < 1,000 psia, temperature < 200 oF)

Instructions:
1) Update input data in blue;
2) Run Macro Solution;
3) Enter a value for z-factor in the "Flash Calculation" section;
4) View results.

Input Data:
