Abstract

Experimental data and empirical correlations for the total absorption of band groups at 15, 10.4, 9.4, 7.5, 5.2, 4.8, 4.3, 2.7, 1.6, and 1.4 μ are presented for carbon dioxide gas in nitrogen at total pressures from 0.5 to 10 atm, temperatures from 294° to 1390°K (530° to 2500°R) and mole fractions from 0.05 to 1.00. The data were obtained from low-resolution measurements of the spectral absorptivity. Use of optical paths of 129 cm at 294°K and 38.8 cm at that and higher temperatures resulted in a range of mass path lengths from 10 to 24 500 g/m2.
