An equation of state for dense nitrogen

  • V. F. Anisichkin


An empirical equation of state for nitrogen at high pressure and density is considered. It is shown that for nitrogen at densities greater than 0.6 g/cm3, by using available data [1–3] on static compression of gaseous nitrogen and shock compression of liquid nitrogen, it is possible to construct a Mie-Grüneisen type equation of state which gives a pressuredensity relationship close to experiment along the shock adiabat of liquid nitrogen and agrees with the calculations of other authors for temperature values beyond the shock-wave front [2–3]. Heat capacity, entropy, and Grüneisen coefficient values beyond the shock-wave front in liquid nitrogen are calculated.
