 CYTSoft Psychrometric Calculator 1.0

#### Overview CYTSoft Psychrometric Calculator 1.0 provides engineers and scientists with highly accurate thermodynamic properties of moist air. It calculates as many as 42 properties completely based on ASHRAE's Hyland-Wexler Formulations, which treat dry air, water vapor and moist air as real gases, rather than ideal gases.
• Platform: Windows 98/2000 or higher
• Limitations: 30-day trial
• File Size: 0.9 MB
• Current Version: 1.0
• Release Date: November 11, 2008
• Units: SI and I-P

#### Range of validity

• Pressure: 1 Pa to 5 MPa
• Dry-bulb temperature: -50 to 200 deg C
• Humidity ratio: 0 to 100 000 (kg moisture)/(kg dry air), or 0 to 100 000 000 (g moisture)/(kg dry air)

#### Equation of state

Moist air is treated as mixture of two real gases. The P-v-T equation for each component and mixture is described by a virial equation of state

Pv/RT = Z = 1 + B/v + C/v2 + ...

where

P = pressure
v = molar specific volume
T = absolute temperature
R = gas constant
Z = compressibility factor
B = second virial coefficient
C = third virial coefficient

Fourth and higher-order virial coefficients are assumed to be negligible. The virial coefficients are functions of temperature, and they account for the deviation of actual gases from ideal gases.
