Latent heat and critical temperature: A unique perspective
We are going to introduce the concept of “kinematic numbers” and their application to the probability function. We shall then see how this may help explain both the latent heat of vaporization and the critical temperature. Moreover, our intuitive approach allows us to understand both phenomena based upon kinetic theory, and the Boltzmann factor. We shall also discuss the limitations of Avogadro's hypothesis, and show a unique interpretation for the Clausius‐Clapeyron equation.
