Description: Report presenting a graphic method for determining the composition and phases within a propellant tank when liquid oxygen is pressurized with nitrogen gas and some of the calculations involved. The assumed limiting conditions are that pressurizing gas flows adiabatically from the pressure tank and that equilibrium exists in the oxygen-nitrogen system. The experiment indicates that a series dilution of the oxidant occurs when nitrogen is used as a pressurizing gas, but a barrier at the liquid-gas interface would permit the use of nitrogen.
