Abstract

AN equation of state is derived for a system consisting of a perfect gas containing solid particles in suspension. It is assumed that temperature‐equilibrium is maintained throughout. The results are applied to calculate the kinetic energy obtainable from the adiabatic expansion of a stream of such a system, and related quantities. The assumptions of the treatment are critically examined.
