1%) seems to be the most relevant. 537 (ethers) This type of function is dealt with easily using the author's method. 35) taking the confidence interval into account. Eb = 172~ is chosen. 3 Flashpoints - - ----- --------flashpointexperimental data 'overlap' each other. Notice in anticipation that there is a limit of 93~ which leads to a change in the 'NFPA' classification code (inflammability from I to 2) showing how sometimes the level of error can have important consequences on risk evaluation.

3 Calculation of liquid/vapour equilibrium concentration Having obtained vapour pressure values, which are of minimum reliability, the vapour equilibrium concentration of the substance can be obtained and compared with various risk parameters or regulatory criteria in order to estimate a potentially dangerous situation. Depending on the work to be done, one has to proceed to a selection of appropriate units. If Pa is the atmospheric pressure, the equilibrium concentration Ceq can be expressed as volume percentage in the form: Ceq -- 1O0 x Pvap Pa (3) The value obtained will allow direct comparison with the limits of inflammability that are always given in percentage form and enable us to deduce whether the substance presents the risk of building an explosive mixture with air.

The first case will be considered, followed by an actual example. Estimation of boiling point under normal pressure II The equations (1) and/or (2) allow determination of this value if the group, and the boiling point under reduced pressure (or reliable pressures) are known. 7465 - A x t The solution Eb = 2(~ is the only one that is physically feasible. In order to estimate Eb only the boiling point 't" (in ~ and the group need be known. under pressure 'P' (in mmHg) There is no easy example to illustrate this method.
