Similarity Relations and Critical Constants of Heavy Fluid Alkali Metals Academic Article uri icon


  • Chapman and March demonstrated from experimental data on critical constants for temperature and volume of the fluid alkali metals that TCVnc = constant, where n is about 0.3. It is pointed out here that the similarity relations given by Likalter, though restricted in their validity to the heavy fluid alkali metals, yield n = 1/3. 1994, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
