    • Abstract


      Various state-equations, derived by expanding energy as a function of volume in Taylor series and using different order Pade’s approximants, have been combined with quasi-harmonic approximation for free energy to reproduce the pressure dependence of thermodynamic properties of NaBr, NaI and AgCl crystals. We have used these state-equations to compute the reduced volume, the isothermal bulk modulus and the pressure derivative of isothermal bulk modulus for the three crystals at various pressures (up to 80 kbar) and at room temperature (T=298 K). The results obtained are reasonably good lending support to the state-equations and the technique used to extend their applicability. The significant results obtained in the present study include the unified reduced equation of state for the three crystals which generates almost a single curve for theP – V behaviour at room temperature.
