Reduced Specific Volume

Reduced specific volume ( \(\upsilon_r\) ) (pseudo-reduced specific volume) of a fluid is ratio of the specific volume of a substance's critical pressure and temperature.

Reduced Specific Volume formula

\(\large{  \upsilon_r = \frac {\upsilon p_c}{R^*T_c}   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ \upsilon_r }\)    (Greek symbol upsilon) = reduced specific volume

\(\large{ p_c }\) = critical pressure

\(\large{ R^* }\) = universal gas constant

\(\large{ T_c }\) = critical temperature

\(\large{ \upsilon}\)   (Greek symbol upsilon) = specific volume
