From the measured data points of the vapour pressure curve the constants A, B and C of the Antoine equation

 

Log10 p = A + B / (C + Θ)

 

can be derived by regression (Microsoft Excel) of the data points to

 

A = 11.0223

B = -3187.08

C = 273.15.

 

 

Final Results

The vapour pressure of the test item was calculated by extrapolation of the measured vapour pressure curve for the temperatures 20, 25 and 50 °C, according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.4.
