Some articles on mole, atoms, moles, atom:
... was discovered empirically, states that the mole-specific heat capacity assumes the value 3 R ... the lower end involve solids composed of relatively low-mass, tightly bonded atoms, such as beryllium at 2.0 R, and diamond at only 0.735 R ... Dulong-Petit limit of 3 R, so long as this is calculated per mole of atoms, not molecules ...
... gasoline, water and ammonia, result from calculating specific heats in terms of moles of molecules ... If specific heat is expressed per mole of atoms for these substances, none of the constant-volume values exceed, to any large extent, the theoretical Dulong-Petit limit of 25 J/(mol·K) = 3 R per mole of atoms (see ... and thus a high heat capacity per mole, but as a substance it does not have remarkable heat capacity in terms of volume, mass, or atom-mol (which is just 1.41 R per ...
... this temperature is five-thirds that of monatomic gases, on a per-mole of atoms basis, it is five-sixths that of a monatomic gas ... Two separate nitrogen atoms would have a total of six degrees of freedom—the three translational degrees of freedom of each atom ... When the atoms are bonded the molecule will still only have three translational degrees of freedom, as the two atoms in the molecule move as one ...
Famous quotes containing the words atoms and/or mole:
“The atoms of Democritus
And Newtons particles of light
Are sands upon the Red Sea shore,
Where Israels tents do shine so bright.”
—William Blake (17571827)
“The ignorance and darkness that is in us, no more hinders nor confines the knowledge that is in others, than the blindness of a mole is an argument against the quicksightedness of an eagle.”
—John Locke (16321704)
