12.1 Introduction

It was mentioned in the previous chapter that under certain conditions, atmospheric air can be considered as a pure substance and also as an ideal gas. A mixture of homogenous ideal gases can also be considered as an ideal gas if they do not react with each other during a change of state. The properties of a mixture of ideal gases depend on the ...
