D.  Heats Free Energies, and Equilibrium Constants of Some Reactions Involving O2, H2O, C, CO, CO2, H2, CH4.  Jour. Research Nat.

        Values are given for:  The heat-content function, (H-Ho)/T, the free-energy function, (F-Ho)T, the entropy, S, the heat content, H-Ho, and the heat capacity, Cop, for:  O2(g), H2(g), N2(g), CO(g) all to 5,000 K.; H2O (g) to 3,000 K.; CO2(g); CO2(g) to 3,500K.; C (solid, diamond) to 1,200 K.  Also given are:  The standard entropy, S, for H2O (liq) at 25%; the heat of formation, the free energy of formation, and the equilibrium constant of formation from the elements, for H2O (liq) at 25 and for H2O(g), CO(g), CO2(g), and CH4(g) at 1,500 K.; the increment in heat content and free energy for the transition of graphite into diamond at 1,200 K. and 20,000 atm.  From the foregoing, values were calculated for ∆H, ∆F, and the equilibrium constant to 1,500K. for the following reactions, most of which are important in connection with the production of liquid hydrocarbon fuels from natural gas or coal and H: C (solid, graphite)+CO2(g)=2 CO(g); C (solid, graphite)+H2O(g)=CO(g)+H2(g); CO(g)+1/2O2(g)=CO2(g); CO(g)+H2O(g)=CO2(g)+H2(g); CH4(g)+1/2 O2(g)=CO(g) 2 H2(g); CH4(g)+CO2(g)=2 CO(g)+2 H2(g); CH4(g)+H2O(g)=CO(g)+3 H2(g); CH4(g)+2 H2O(g)=CO2(g)+4 H2(g).
