Density of gas mixture
« on: July 18, 2018, 07:08:39 AM »
I found a link (a book extract) showing speed of sound in various gas mixtures.

It shows "3% H20 in N2" as hving a molecular weight of 26.12.

My attempt to verify that number is:

0.97*28 + 0.03*18 = 27.7

Where am I going wrong?

Here is the link

You are right. There must be an error in the book.
