A convenient alternative is to start with the pure-component fugacity at the saturation pressure, [f.sup.pure.sub.w] (T, [p.sup.sat]), which typically differs by only a small correction from the readily available pure-component vapor pressure [p.sup.sat](T) [[f.sup.pure.sub.w] (T, [p.sup.sat]) = [[phi].sup.sat][p.sup.sat], where [[phi].sup.sat.sub.w](T, [p.sup.sat]), the fugacity coefficient at saturation, is 1 for an ideal gas and typically slightly less than 1 for low and moderate pressures].
Furthermore, Redlich-Kwong state equation was used by the authors to calculate ethane fugacity coefficient. The activity coefficient of each solvent was calculated using a combination of Redlich-Kister equation with three parameters and the Gibbs-Duhem equation.
where, [x.sub.i.sup.L] and [x.sub.i.sup.F] are the compositions of component i in the liquid and fluid phases and [[bar.[empty set]].sub.i] is the fugacity coefficient of component i.
