One of a series of mathematical studies of ablative materials. The memorandum is an investigation of the thermodynamics of Teflon over a range of tempertures up to 6000 deg k and pressures up to 100,000 atmospheres. Tweo sets of equilibrium composition equations are employed: one representing a pure gas phase; the other, a heterogeneous system of gas and solid carbon. Results of the computational program are presented in both tabular and graphic form.
