This paper is an extension to polar liquids of the cell theory of liquid structure originally developed by Lennard-Jones & Devonshire. The free energy due to dipole interaction is evaluated using a model consisting of point dipoles fixed on the sites of a lattice but free to rotate in the electrical field of all the others. It is shown that, to a first approximation, the total free energy can be expressed as the sum of the free energy of this model and the free energy of a similar liquid… CONTINUE READING
