Measurements of thermophysical properties of sodium acetate hydrate
- 577 Downloads
Methods to measure the thermal conductivity, the specific heat capacity, and the heat of fusion of sodium acetate hydrate have been developed and the measured results have been reported for various concentrations and especially for various supercooling temperatures. Thermal conductivity was measured by using a probe method with a thermistor. The sensor element is very small, with a diameter of 0.5 mm and a length of 1.5 mm. Data for both the ordinary liquid and the supercooled liquid are smoothly connected to each other.
