Abstract:

The thermodynamic properties and equilibrium composition of sodium vapor at densities from 10 to the 6th power to 1 amagat are presented for temperatures from 400 to 10,000 K. The calculations were made using the ideal gas approximation. Dissociation and ionization were taken into account, but no correction was made for intermolecular forces and for the lowering of the ionization potential. The method of making these calculations is described in detail. Author
