- Select volume or mass percent composition
- Volume fraction %vol
- Ratio of propane or butane volume to the total volume of the mixture
- Mass fraction %wt
- Ratio of propane or butane mass to the total mass of the mixture

- q liq - volume flow rate of the liquid phase
- LPG flow when it is in the liquid phase, before the evaporator
- q gas - volume flow rate of the gas phase at normal conditions
- LPG flow when it is in the gas phase, after the evaporator
- V liq - velocity of the liquid phase
- The velocity of LPG when it is in a liquid phase before it evaporates
- V gas - velocity of the gas phase
