Reduced Specific Volume

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff. Posted in Fluid Mechanics

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

formula

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

Where:

\(\upsilon_r\) (Greek symbol upsilon) = reduced specific volume

\(\upsilon\) (Greek symbol upsilon) = specific volume

\(p_c\) = critical pressure

\(R^*\) = universal gas constant

\(T_c\) = critical temperature
