Abstract

Thermodynamic relationships connect many phenomena in somewhat surprising ways. This paper discusses how calorimetric information (enthalpy and heat capacity changes on solution) can be derived from data on the solubility of gases in liquids as a function of temperature. The primary examples come from the high-precision data on the solubility of a number of gases in water where there are calorimetric results on gas solubilities for comparison purposes.
