Sound Velocity and Molecular Structure in Isomers of Saturated Hydrocarbons
Measurements of the sound velocity and the density are carried out in the isomers of hexane and octane. These measurements serve to test the theory of the connexion between sound velocity and molecular structure. It is confirmed that for isomers with the same number of substituents (here in the present work of CH3-groups) the substance with the greater density has also the greater sound velocity. The changes in sound velocity are divisible into one part concerning the space filling of the molecules and into a second part determined by the ramification of the molecules. As expected equivalent displacements of CH3-groups in different hydrocarbons lead to equivalent changes of the sound velocity.
