Equation of state of a plane chain molecule

  • K. N. Kan
Brief Communications


An equation of state giving the relation between the intermolecular gap, the intermolecular force, the longitudinal force, and temperature is obtained from the Clausius virial theorem on the basis of a mechanical model of a plane zig-zag macromolecule.
