    Abstract

    An equation to predict the Reid vapor pressure (RVP) of pure hydrocarbon blends was developed which includes activity coefficients. A comparison of calculated and analytical data shows a standard deviation of 0.15 lb. Applications to predict the RVP of gasoline blends are suggested.
