    • Abstract


      Expressions for thermal properties such as thermal expansion, specific heat and melting point are obtained by employing the usual quadratic-quartic form of the potential energy. Computed results for nineteen cubic metals are presented and compared with the experimental values. The model describes the broad features observed in the thermal properties and an estimate of the anharmonicity in cubic metals.
