Horsepower Required to Compress Air, Two-Stage Compression

Horsepower required to compress one cubic foot of free air per minute (isothermally and adiabatically) from atmospheric pressure (14.7 pounds per square inch) to various gage pressures. Two-Stage Compression, initial temperature of air, 60°F, jacket cooling not considered.
