Lattice and electronic specific heats of zinc and cadmium

  • T. M. Srinivasan


The specific heats of zinc and cadmium have been measured at liquid helium temperatures (4·2 to 1·3° K.) and are found to be represented by the formula C v (zinc)=10−4 [(1·630±0·046) T+(0·143±0·009) T3] Cal./° K. Ca v (cadmium)=10−4 [(1·518±0·138) T+(0·689±0·040) T3] Cal./°K.
