Abstract: The behavior of gas mixtures is such that as the density is increased above its usual base conditions, the dependency of the volume of a given mass may not be expressed accurately in terms of its pressure and temperatures as set out in the ideal gas law. This deviation from the ideal gas law is dependent upon the pressure, temperature, and composition of the gas the more complex the gas, the greater will be the deviation. Propane and the heavier hydrocarbon gases will behave less ideally than methane which has a simple molecule.
