Abstract
A technique has been developed for the simultaneous measurement of fuel vapour pressure and the quantity of dissolved air in the fuel, providing that conditions are selected such that the vapour pressure is a considerable fraction of the total pressure. The technique has been proved by the measurement of the vapour pressure of pure substances which were capable of being accepted as being standards. Further confirmation was obtained by comparing the measured values of simple mixtures (up to 5 components) with the calculations using Raoult's and Henry's Laws. The solubility constants determined using the present technique have been shown to be in reasonable agreement with published valued obtained by other workers using different techniques.
