1. [Ignition of liquids] The Antoine equation describes the relation between temperature
and vapour pressure for pure components.
log10 ?? = ?? –
?? + ??
where ?? is the vapour pressure, and ??, ?? and ?? are component specific constants. The
equation is only valid for a particular range of temperatures, and should never be used
outside the valid temperature range.
The table below presents the Antoine equation coefficients and the lean flammability limit
(LFL) for iso-octane and n-dodecane. NOTE: The resulting vapour pressure is given in
