A study of the effect of total pressure on the emissivity of carbon dioxide
The monochromatic absorptivity of carbon dioxide was measured at room temperature and for total pressures from one-quarter to three atmospheres. The total emissivity at room temperature was calculated from the monochromatic absorptivity values obtained, also the total absorptivity for the gas at temperatures of 504°F and 1000°F was calculated. The results of this study were then compared with data obtained in a different manner from previous work.
Since this work was to be only a starting point for future work, both previous theoretical considerations and recommendations have been included.
