The Most Probable Up-to-Date Value of the Normal Molecular Volume V0 of an Ideal Gas
The evaluation with all possible accuracy of the normal molecular volume, V 0 of gases in the ideal state is of great interest not only in order to know that fundamental constant but also because it is indispensable in order to establish rigorously the values of the fundamental constants R 0 (gas constant per mole) and k (Boltzmann’s constant). Since in order to fix V 0 with desirable precision one must employ the method of limiting gas density, we believe it will be useful before going into the main subject to recall briefly the ideas on which the method is based.
