Hi Everyone...
I'm trying to calculate the specific gravity of a sample of LNG using a compostion certificate and temperature and pressure variables of 5 bar at 134 deg C saturated. Its do perform a check for the value used to calculate how much is charged per litre by converting density to litres. The density should be around 0.4 kg/m^3 but i cant seem to get a close answer to that using the ideal gas equation, pv = nrt. Infor on composition certificate; Gas composition; Nitrogen ; 1.18% Methane; 96.66% Gas density at 15 deg C = 0.699 k/m^3 Ave MW = 16.487 g/mol Can someone please help? thanks.

pV=nRT is and ideal GAS equation, LNG is a LIQUEFIED natural gas. You can't use theory that describes gaseous state to liquid state.

Any suggestions to which way i should approach it then? cheers.

Specific Gravity of LNG
Only approach I can think of is to find density tables for LNG, engineering handbooks should have these. There are no theoretical equations that would allow calculation of density of a liquid (and even when such equations exist, they make heavy use of experimentally determined coefficients  so we are back to the handbook and tables).
