The **Dieterici** equation of state ^{[1]} is given by

where (Eq. 8 in ^{[2]}):

and

where is the pressure, is the temperature and is the molar gas constant. is the critical temperature and is the pressure at the critical point.

## Sadus modification[edit]

Sadus ^{[3]} proposed replacing the repulsive section of the Dieterici equation with the Carnahan-Starling equation of state, which is often used to describe the equation of state of the hard sphere model, resulting in (Eq. 5):

where is the packing fraction.

This equation gives:

and
