Thermodynamics of Lithium

Thermodynamics of Lithium explains the effect of temperature on this metal. Thermal properties of Lithium describe concepts like of specific heat, molar heat capacity, thermal conductivity, critical temperature, enthalpy, etc. These properties play an important role in understanding the phenomenon of thermodynamics. The behavior like ductility, magnetic ordering and viscosity are governed by thermodynamic characteristics of the metal.

The enthalpy of Lithium has some variants like enthalpy of vaporization, fusion and atomization. Their values are enthalpy of vaporization 134.70 kJ/mol, enthalpy of fusion 3.00 kJ/mol, and 160.70 kJ/mol respectively.

Specific Heat of Lithium

The specific heat of Lithium is 3.60 J/(kg K). When the specific amount of heat is applied to this metal, some structural and behavioral changes occur and those changes are known as the thermal properties of Lithium metal. Molar heat capacity of Lithium is 24.86 J/mol·K. The critical temperature is the temperature at & above which the vapor of the metal cannot be liquefied, no matter after how much extra pressure is applied on it. And the value for Lithium critical temperature is 3.60 J/(kg K).

Thermal Conductivity of Lithium

The thermal conductivity of Lithium is 84.80 W/m·K. Its thermal conductivity is an ability of this metal to conduct heat. Metals which have high thermal conductivity are used as a heat transfer medium and in heat sinks, while those with low thermal conductivity are used for thermal insulation. The thermal expansion of Lithium is 46.00 µm/(m·K). All these thermal properties of Lithium are related to the change in temperature or effect of heat and have a considerable impact on Magnetic Properties of Lithium.
