A SYSTEM OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY

for

specific (or atomic) heat. An attempt in this direction has been

made by J. Koenigsberger {Zeitsch. ElektrocJum., 17, 289, 1911), who

considers that the atomic heat of metals (at constant volume) should

reach 9 instead of 6, by taking the vibrating energy of the electrons into

account. No great stress, however, can be laid upon the significance

of the actual numerical limit quoted {cf. Nernst and Lindemann, loc. at).

It is

interesting, however, to see the numerical values for the atomic

heat C„ actually obtained at high temperatures {c/. Koenigsberger, /oc.

at.) :—

Atomic Heat (at Constant Volume)

Metal.

at High Temperatures.
