Abstract

Molar heat capacities at constant volume (Cv) of trifluoromethane (R23) have been measured with an adiabatic calorimeter. Temperatures ranged from the triple point to 342 K, and pressures up to 33.5 Mpa. Measurements were conducted on the liquid in equilibrium with its vapor and on compressed liquid and gaseous samples. The samples were of high purity, verified by chemical analysis. Calorimetric quantities are reported for the two-phase (Cv2), saturated-liquid (Cς^Cx'), and single-phase (Cv) molar heat capacities. The Cv(2) data were used to estimate vapor pressures for values less than 100 kPa by applying a thermodynamic relationship between the two-phase internal energy U(2) and the temperature derivaives of the vapor pressure. The triple-point temperature and the enthalpy of fusion were also measured. The principal sources of uncertainty are the temperature rise measurement and the change-of-volume work adjustment. The expanded relative uncertainty (with a coverage factor k=2 and thus a two-standard deviation estimate) is estimated to be 0.7%, for Cv 0.5%, for Cv2, and 0.7% for Csigma.
