The thermal conductivities of thirty‐one polar and nonpolar organic vapors have been determined at pressures up to one atmosphere, over a temperature range from 40 to 160°C. The relation between thermal conductivity and viscosity is discussed in terms of the expression: K0MηCv0=f=ftransCvtrans+fintCvintCv0 where, following a suggestion by Eucken, the ratio f is divided into separate components ftrans and fint, corresponding to the different rates of transfer of translational and ``internal… CONTINUE READING
