A program is in progress to measure various thermophysical properties of sodium, potassium, and their vapors at elevated temperatures. Preliminary results are presented for the saturated vapor pressure of potassium from 0.34 to 27.3 atm and the specific heat of the saturated liquid from 1300 to 2100 F. Pressurevolume-temperature data for the vapor states of potassium temperature range from 1573 to 2520 F and pressure range from 2.3 to 24.3 atm have been obtained , and a thermodynamic treatment of the data is underway.
