|Abstract||Density ratios across shock waves in a 0.85 Kr + 0.15 C/sub 2/N/sub 2/ mixture at an initial pressure of 50 mm Hg and room temperature, were determined with an x-ray densitometer as a function of shock velocity. The heat required to dissociate cyanogen into two CN radicals D(C/sub 2/N/sub 2/) was determined to be 145 plus or minus 6 kcal/mole by comparing the experimental data with curves of density ratio vs shock velocity calculated as a function of D(C/sub >/N/sub 2/). Dissociation energies of 174 plus or minus 3 kcal/mole for CN and 129 plus or minus 3 kcal/mole for HCN forming H and CN, and a heat of formation of 109 plus or minus 3 kcal/ mole for CN, were obtained by the application of Hess's law to the appropriate chemical reactions using the value of D(C/sub 2/N/sub 2/) and the currently accepted values for the dissociation enengy of nitrogen (225 kcal/mole) and the heat of sublimation of graphite (170 kcal/mole). The value of D(HCN) was confirmed by annalogous density-velocity measurements on shock waves in a 0.85 Kr plus or minus 0.15 HCN mixture. A rate constant for the recombination of CN to form C/sub 2/N/sub 2/ at 2900 deg K was deduced from the variation of density with time behind the shock. The value obtained was the order of 1 plus or minus 10/sup 9/(mole/liter)/sup -2/ sec/sup -1/. (auth)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
