Ultrasonic absorption in SF6 was measured with an interferometer of two Sell-transducers at the temperatures −20 °C, 0 °C and +20 °C. The frequency was varied between 50 kHz and 600 kHz, the pressure between 10 mm Hg and 400 mm Hg. As regards the non-ideality of the gas the absorption measurements yield values αλmax which agree well with the data calculated from the thermal oscillation. The number of collisions Z 1 was calculated from the relaxation-time Z‴ for the oscillation mode with lowest characteristic frequency ν 1.

The classical Landau-Teller theory describes the temperature dependence of the number of collisions by the law ln Z 1T −⅓. This law is confirmed by the measurements at higher temperatures. At temperatures lower than +20 °C, where van der Waals-forces gain importance, the collision numbers are lower than expected from the classical Landau-Teller theory. Corresponding to the extended theory the deviation from the straight line obtained for the higher temperatures increases with decreasing temperature.
