Thermodynamic Properties of Carbon Dioxide to 24,000°K with Possible Application to the Atmosphere of Venus
Nov 26, 1958
The development of a model for the atmosphere of Venus that consists of 85 percent carbon dioxide and 15 percent nitrogen by volume. The thermodynamic properties of this derived atmospheric composition are given over the temperature-pressure range of 150 degrees K to 24,000 degrees K and 0.0001 atm to 100 atm. Normal-shock-wave characteristics of the model are also presented. A graphical method of obtaining oblique-shock-wave data and a method of obtaining electron concentration at low temperature are included as appendices.
