FLUORINE provides high accuracy thermodynamic and transport properties for fluorine (F2, Molar mass = 37.9968 g/mole) using the Fundamental Equation of State developed by Reiner Tillner-Roth, "Fundamental Equations of State", Shaker, Verlag, Aachan, 1998.  


The data upon which this correlation is based are from:

de Reuck, K.M.

"Fluorine - International Thermodynamic Tables of the Fluid State", Vol. 11, 

IUPAC, Blackwell Scientific Publications, London, 1990.


Reference State 

The default reference state corresponds to the Ideal gas condition at 298.15 K, 101.3 kPa;   h=0.0 kJ/kg  s=0.0 kJ/kg-K.  The reference state can be changed using the $Reference directive.


Range of applicability for equation of state:

   53.481 K < T < 300 K

 0 < P < 20 MPa
