Abstract:

The thermodynamic investigation of graphite covers a range of temperatures up to 6000K and pressures up to 1000 atmospheres. Two sets of equilibrium composition equations are used--one representing a pure gas phase including nine ionized chemical species, the other a heterogeneous system of gas and solid carbon. The results of the computational program are presented in both tabular and graphic form. The latter is a conventional Mollier diagram in which specific enthalpy is plotted against specific entropy, with cross plots of temperature, pressure, molecular weight, and moles of condensed carbon.
