Noro–Frenkel law of corresponding states

Summary
The Noro–Frenkel law of corresponding states is an equation in thermodynamics that describes the critical temperature of the liquid-gas transition T as a function of the range of the attractive potential R. It states that, all short-ranged spherically symmetric pair-wise additive attractive potentials are characterised by the same thermodynamics properties if compared at the same reduced density and second virial coefficient Description Johannes Diderik van der Waals's law of corresponding states expresses the fact that there are basic similarities in the thermodynamic properties of all simple gases. Its essential feature is that if we scale the thermodynamic variables that describe an equation of state (temperature, pressure, and volume) with respect to their values at the liquid-gas critical point, all simple fluids obey the same reduced equation of state. Massimo G. Noro and Daan Frenkel formulated an extended law of corresponding states that predicts the phase behaviour
