Abstract:

Methods of calculating the thermodynamic properties of individual substances are described, and critical analysis is given of the literature data until 1960, including the constants necessary for the calculation of the tables of the thermodynamic properties molecular constants, heats of formation and heats of phase transitions, specific heats, dissociation energies, etc., the choice of the values of these constants accepted in the Handbook is substantiated and their values are estimated for such cases where experimental data are lacking. This 3rd part of Vol. 1 treats the following substances lithium and its compounds alkali metals and compounds of sodium and potassium with fluorine and chlorine zirconium, lead, mercury and their compounds inert gases He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe and the electron gas e-. Appendixes covering the following topics are included isotope composition and nuclear spins of the chemical elements fundamental physical constants and transformation factors formulas for the principal moments of inertia of molecules concise data from the theory of molecular vibrations and formulas for the frequencies consideration of the intermolecular interactions in the calculation of the thermodynamic functions of gases critical constants.
