 petrol: N. L. Prater's Petrol Refinery Data
N. L. Prater's Petrol Refinery Data
Description
The yield of a petroleum refining process with four covariates. The crude oil appears to come from only 10 distinct samples.
These data were originally used by Prater (1956) to build an estimation equation for the yield of the refining process of crude oil to gasoline.
Usage
1 
Format
The variables are as follows
No

crude oil sample identification label. (Factor.)
SG

specific gravity, degrees API. (Constant within sample.)
VP

vapour pressure in pounds per square inch. (Constant within sample.)
V10

volatility of crude; ASTM 10% point. (Constant within sample.)
EP

desired volatility of gasoline. (The end point. Varies within sample.)
Y

yield as a percentage of crude.
