Calculation of the Latent Heat of Fusion of Camphor from Vapour Pressure–Temperature Data

Abstract

IT was recently pointed out1 that of the two available values, namely, 400 and 498, for the molecular depression of freezing point (K) of camphor, the larger figure seemed the more correct, because it had been subjected to an a posteriori verification by its discoverer Jouniaux,2,3 and, secondly, because the smaller value had been drawn from a fusion point diagram4 of doubtful accuracy.5
