Abstract

Experimental specific isochoric heat capacities (Cv) and PρT properties for isobutane are presented that were measured with a twin-cell type adiabatic isochoric calorimeter. The measurements were obtained for temperatures from 272 to 408 K and for pressures up to 30 MPa. The sample purity was 99.99 mol%. The expanded uncertainties (I.E., a coverage factor k=2) are plus or minus} 13 mK for temperature, plus or minus} 8 kPa for pressure, plus or minus} 0.16% for density, and plus or minus} 3.6% for Cv in the liquid phase. An evaluation and a comparison of the experimental data with highly reliable equations of state confirmed satisfactorily the thermodynamic consistency of the present measurements.
