Patterns in new dimensionless quantities containing melting temperature, and their dependence on pressure

U. WALZER

Abstract


The relationships existing between melting temperature and other
macroscopic physical quantities are investigated. A new dimensionless
quantity Q(1 not containing the Grtineisen parameter proves to be suited for serving in future studies as a tool for the determination of the melting temperature in the outer core of the Earth. The pressure dependence of more general dimensionless quantities Q„ is determined analytically and, for the chemical elements, numerically, too. The patterns of various interesting dimensionless quantities are shown in the Periodic Table and compared.
