(HP65) Thermochemical Radii (kapustinskii equation)
An extract from A Thermodynamic Investigation of Some AlkaliMetal Polyhalide Compounds, Stuart John Peake (PhD thesis), University of London, January 1976 (194 pages)
… although it is necessary to make several assumptions, the Kapustinskii equation provides a useful method to obtain approximate lattice energies, especially when the experimental data necessary for more precise calculation is lacking. A computer programme … was employed to calculate the 'thermochemical radii' contained in Table 3 of this Appendix … an identical programme {pages 177179} was written for use with a Hewlett Packard HP65 programmable calculator. Interesting? BEST! SlideRule
