A modified form of the Redlich-Kwong two-parameter equation of state is presented. The modified equation employs the acentric factor and the critical point compressibility factor as additional parameters to improve its accuracy and to extend its application range to include the critical point. This modified equation is as simple as the original form, yet achieves substantially better prediction accuracy, including thermodynamic parameters such as enthalpy and entropy. Results from this equation, the original equation, and three other popular modified forms are compared with gas property data for several compounds to demonstrate its improved accuracy and increased application range. Practical application limits to the other modified forms are identified to guide current users of those methods.
