Error in equations 1 & 2

As per this email, there was a sign error (which I have corrected), and a version in SI units is available. I do not have access to the references 5 and 6, so cannot check the details. --Daniel Mietchen 15:47, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

I checked my notes and there was indeed a sign error ... for which I apologise. Milton Beychok 18:55, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
I just sent an email to Alain Durand at the Litwin company in France for having notified us of the sign error. However, I am puzzled as to how he ended up sending his email CZ-bugs ?? Milton Beychok 19:14, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

About errors in the acid dew point equations

In the past few days, sign errors were pointed out in 3 of the 5 equations and they have now been corrected. In reviewing my notes, I have come to the conclusion that the errors occurred because I may have been misled by the book reference Combustion and Incineration Processes by Walter Niessen which had those same sign errors. So I have deleted that reference. I replaced it with another book reference, "Steam Plant Calculations Manual'" by V. Ganapathy.

I have gone further and indicated for each of the equations, the multiple references that support the equations as now written.Milton Beychok 20:32, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
