Ill. Admin. Code tit. 35, § 218.109 - Vapor Pressure of Volatile Organic Liquids

Current through Vol. 46, No. 16, April 15, 2022

a) If the VOL consists of only a single compound, the vapor pressure shall be determined by ASTM Method D2879-86 (incorporated by reference in Section 218.112 of this Part) or the vapor pressure may be obtained from a publication such as: Boublik, T., V. Fried and E. Hala, "The Vapor Pressure of Pure Substances," Elsevier Scientific Publishing Co., New York (1973); Perry's Chemical Engineer's Handbook, McGraw-Hill Book Company (1984); CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, Chemical Rubber Publishing Company (1986-87); and Lange's Handbook of Chemistry, John A. Dean, editor, McGraw-Hill Book Company (1985).
b) If the VOL is a mixture, the vapor pressure shall be determined by ASTM Method D2879-86 (incorporated by reference in Section 218.112) or by the following equation:

where:

Pvol

=

Total vapor pressure of the mixture;

n

=

Number of components in the mixture;

i

=

Subscript denoting an individual component;

Pi

=

Vapor pressure of a component determined in accordance with subsection (a) of this Section;

Xi

=

Mole fraction of the component in the total mixture.
