In this report, we have examined the behavior of heat capacities and Joule-Thomson coefficients in low- and moderate-density regions based on recent theoretical studies of the ideal-gas heat capacity and virial coefficients of R-32, R-125, R-134a, R-143a, and R-152a. The results have been compared with those derived from empirical equations of state which have been recently developed, based on a large quantity of experimental data for these refrigerants. Both results are in good agreement. Proper behaviors for these second-derivative properties justify the use of the empirical equations of state in low-temperature and low-density regions where no experimental data are available.
