# Vapor-Phase Solubility of Decane in Nitrogen as Functions of Temperature and Pressure

This Demonstration computes the solubility of a high-temperature boiling fluid (-decane) in supercritical nitrogen at various high pressures for user-set values of the temperature. Two approximate methods for solubility prediction are compared: (1) the ideal gas assumption (blue curve); and (2) real gas behavior, described by the virial equation of state (red curve). Here, the fugacity coefficients are computed using the virial equation.
