Abstract:

IN HIGHER ORDER TRANSFORMATIONS, LATENT HEAT IS NOT INVOLVED INSTEAD, SPECIFIC HEAT INCREASES WITH ACCELERATING RAPIDITY UP TO THE TRANSITION TEMPERATURE AND THEN DROPS SUDDENLY. Techniques of differential thermal analysis are described. Results are given for analyses of sodium nitrite, basic beryllium acetate, chromic oxide, dichromates, ammonium nitrate, and copper sulfate pentahydrate. Author
