For a given temperature T, one of the coefficients in the expansion of P/RT in inverse powers of the molar volume, where P is the pressure and R is the gas constant.

where R is the gas constant, V2 is the specific volume of the polymer, V1 is the molar volume of the solute, P10 is the vapor pressure, and B11 is the second virial coefficient of the solute in the gaseous state.
A measure of protein-protein interactions known as the osmotic second virial coefficient, or [B.
They give rise to a third term in the so-called virial expansion of the pressure of the system in terms of the density, and therefore, it is named the "third virial coefficient.

We employ state-of-the-art pair and three-body potentials with path-integral Monte Carlo (PIMC) methods to calculate the third density virial coefficient C(T) for helium.
The equation contains virial coefficients up to the third virial coefficient.
But, it represents poorly the supercritical state: the properties of the fluids in this region are inaccurately predicted, in particular, derived properties such as the second virial coefficient [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] and the Joule-Thomson inversion curve.
Two tested submodels, which closely resemble the real gas model, were based on substitution of the virial coefficient contribution to property values in favor of a simple correlation.
Intermolecular Potentials and the Evaluation of the Second Virial Coefficient.
where R is the gas constant, T is the column temperature, M1 is the molecular mass of the probe, P1 is the saturated vapor pressure of the probe at temperature T, and B11 is the second virial coefficient of the probe in the gaseous state and can be determine from Equation 15.
Knowledge of the pair and three-body potential-energy surfaces of helium is now sufficient to allow calculation of the third density virial coefficient, C(T), with significantly smaller uncertainty than that work, we employ the best available pair and three-body potentials for helium and calculate C(T) with path-integral Monte Carlo (PIMC) calculations supplemented by semiclassical calculations.
