Heat Capacity

Chapter

Abstract

This section attempts to interpret the thermal properties of materials using atomistic concepts. In particular, an interpretation of the experimentally observed molar heat capacity at high temperatures, C v = 25 (J/mol · K) that is, 6 (cal/mol · K), is of interest.
