The thermodynamic properties of the azeotropic refrigerant mixture R500 (73.8% R12, 26.2% R152a by mass) are provided by Martin-Hou equation of state (A.I.Ch.E. Journal, 1:142, 1955).  Fitted parameters are from Downing and Knight, DuPont Technical Bulletin RT-52, 1971.


The reference state is determined by setting specific enthalpy and entropy of saturated liquid to 0.


Range of applicability for transport function correlations:

Gas-phase viscosity:  240 K to 390 K

Liquid-phase viscosity: 200 K to 370 K

Gas-phase thermal conductivity data are not implemented

Liquid-phase thermal conductivity" 290 K to 335 K
