Calculation
1) The vapour pressure is related to the observed mass difference by the following equation:
Vp = ρm ∙g / A
where:
Vp = vapour pressure (Pa)
ρm =mass difference (kg)g = acceleration due to gravity (9.813ms^{-2})
A = area of the orifice (7.06858x10^{-6}m^{2})
2) The vapour pressure is related to temperature by the following equation:
Log_{10}[Vp (Pa)] = [slope / temperature (K)]+ intercept
A plot ofLog_{10}[Vp (Pa)] versus reciprocal temperature [1/T(K)] therefore gives a straight line graph.
The vapour pressure of the sample was measured over a range of temperatures to enable extrapolation to 298.15 K.

Applicant's summary and conclusion
- Conclusions:
- vapour pressure = 0,54 Pa (at 25°C)
- Executive summary:
According to EU Method A.4 the vapour pressure was determined using a vapour pressure balance with measurements being made at several temperatures and linear regression analysis used to calculate the vapour pressure at 25 °C.
The vapour pressure of the test material has been determined to be 5.4 x 10-1 Pa at 25 ºC (arithmetic mean of five determinations) - the test material did not change in appearance under the conditions used in the determination.
