Volume-Based Thermoelasticity: Consequences of the (Near) Proportionality of Isothermal Compressibility to Formula-Unit Volume
MetadataShow full item record
Groups of structurally related materials, including the alkali halides, exhibit a proportionality of isothermal compressibility to formula-unit volume. The relationship has recently been explored by Glasser and by Recio et al. In this paper, we present the consequences of such proportionality on the relationships of Born-Lande and Born-Mayer parameters to the formula-unit volume. These relationships have then been tested separately on (i) alkali (excluding cesium) halides and (ii) cesium halides.We conclude that the equations fit the NaCl-type materials satisfactorily, but less well for the CsCl-type materials, and that the Born-Mayer equation is more applicable. These results confirm the conclusion that volume is intimately linked to thermodynamic quantities, as already demonstrated by our development of volume-based thermodynamics (VBT).
