A method has been devised for using the high frequency induction coil as a high temperature calorimeter. The method enables one to determine the heat effects produced at high temperatures. The method has been applied to the determination of the heats of formation of the alloys Na-Sn and Li-Sn. The average heat of formation delta H determined for Na-Sn is -9.63 0.40 hilocalories per mole at 8730 K. This value becomes -10.6 0.6 kilocalories per mole when extrapolated to 298 deg K. The average heat of formation delta H determined for Li-Sn is -17.57 0.83 kilocalories per mole at 850 deg K. This value becomes -18.62 1.50 kilocalories per mole when extrapolated to 298 deg K. These results are compared with the results of other investigators.
