The Properties of Pure Liquids

H.S. Tsienimage

(Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Jet Propulsion Center, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif.)

By a semiempirical approach, a method is found to calculate the specific heat of a normal pure liquid at constant pressure from the specific heat of the gaseous state at the same temperature. It is also found that the coefficient of thermal expansion, the compressibility, and the velocity of sound of the liquid can be calculated accurately if the density, the molecular weight, and the normal boiling temperature of the liquid at atmospheric pressure are known. Finally, a method of computing the ...
