Abstract

The equation ϕ = B(V - Vo)/Vo, which reproduces the fluidity of simple liquids accurately over ranges between freezing and boiling points, is here shown to hold to pressures of at least 500 atm, and nearly to critical volumes. Fluidity can vary continuously above the critical region into that of compressed gas, where the parameter B becomes a function of temperature.
