Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics


We obtain relations between the dielectric permittivity and the density of monatomic and polyatomic nonpolar dielectrics in the gas and liquid states. The relations lead to a constant value of the polarizability of atoms and molecules over a wide range of the state parameters.
