A Helmholtz free energy equation of state for the fluid phase of hydrogen sulfide has been developed as a function of reduced temperature and density with 23 terms on the basis of selected measurements of pressure-density-temperature (P, ρ, T), isobaric heat-capacity, and saturation properties. Based on a comparison with available experimental data, it is recognized that the model represents most of the reliable experimental data accurately in the range of validity covering temperatures from the triple point temperature (187.67 K) to 760 K at pressures up to 170 MPa. The uncertainty in density calculation of the present equation of state is 0.7% in the liquid phase, and that in pressure calculation is 0.3% in the vapor phase. The uncertainty in saturated vapor pressure calculation is 0.2%, and that in isobaric heat-capacity calculation is 1% in the liquid phase. The behavior of the isobaric heat-capacity, isochoric heat-capacity, speed-of-sound, and Joule-Thomson coefficients calculated by the present model shows physically reasonable behavior and those of the calculated ideal curves also illustrate the capability of extending the range of validity. Graphical and statistical comparisons between experimental data and the available thermodynamic models are also discussed.
