Molecular complexity of water vapour and the speed of sound

Abstract

EVIDENCE has been given for a high binding energy of dimerisation in water vapour deduced from measurements of the speed of sound1. The quoted value of 0.5 eV per molecule must be reconciled with values of about 0.2 eV per molecule which have been derived both from thermodynamic measurements2 and from molecular orbital calculations3. We are interested in… (More)
