Abstract. On the basis of results obtained in the previous paper, by combining the
statistical moment method and the self-consistent field method, the thermodynamic
quantities for molecular cryocrystals of nitrogen type such as solid α-N2, α-CO, CO2 and
N2Owith face-centered cubic (FCC) structure and solid β-N2 with hexagonal close packed
(HCP) structure are calculated. The obtained results for the molar heat capacity at constant
volume are compared with the experimental data.
Keywords: Statistical moment method, self-consistent field method, molecular cryocrystal.
1. Introduction
The thermodynamic properties of molecular cryocrystals of nitrogen type have been
considered in many experimental works [1]. The theoretical results calculated on the basis of
the one-particle distribution functions [2], the self-consistent phonon theory [3], the Monte-Carlo
simulation [4], etc. are relatively far from the experimental data.
In the present paper we shall apply the theoretical results obtained in the previous paper to
the case of α-N2, α-CO, CO2 and N2O crystals with face-centered cubic (FCC) structure and the
β-N2 crystal with hexagonal close-packed (HCP) structure. In order to investigate them, we use
the Lennard-Jones (6-12) pair potential for vibrational quantities and the quadrupole potential for
rotational quantities. We have only considered the thermodynamic quantities such as the nearest
neighbor distance, the lattice constant, the free energy, the energy, the entropy and the heat capacity
at constant volume for the above mentioned crystals at different temperatures and zero pressure.
Some obtained values are in relatively good agreement with the experimental data for the heat
capacity at constant volume.

2.1. Numerical results of thermodynamic quantities for molecular
cryocrystals of nitrogen type in harmonic approximation
In order to apply the theoretical results obtained previously to molecular cryocrystals of
nitrogen type in harmonic approximation, we use the Lennard-Jones interaction potential
φ(r) = 4ε1
[(σ
r
)12 − (σ
r
)6]
, (2.1)
where σ is the distance in which φ(r) = 0 and ε is the depth of the potential well. The values of
the parameters ε, σ are determined from experiments (Table 1)

For solid α-N2, the rotational free energy is positive while the vibrational free energy and
the total free energy are negative. From 10 to 35.6 K, the rotational free energy accounts for 12 to
18.65% of the total free energy, the rotational energy accounts for 14 to 15.8% of the total energy
and the rotational heat capacity at constant volume accounts for 10 to 16.09% of the total heat
capacity at constant volume. From 20 to 35.6 K, the rotational entropy and the total entropy are
negative. The values of the total heat capacity at constant volume are in qualitative agreement with
the experimental data [1] in the 10 to 35.6 K temperature interval.

For solid α-CO, the rotational free energy is positive while the vibrational free energy and
the total free energy are negative. From 20 to 60 K, the rotational free energy accounts for 0.72
to 7.56% of the total energy, the rotational energy accounts for 0.47 to 1.5% of the total free
energy and the rotational heat capacity at constant volume accounts for 10 to 16.09% of the total
heat capacity at constant volume. The rotational entropy is negative and the vibrational entropy is
positive. The total entropy changes from negative to positive at about 52 K. In comparison with
the experimental data [7], the discrepancy in the total heat capacity at constant volume is from
12.8 to 38.3% in the 36 to 52 K temperature interval. The calculated total heat capacity at constant
volume is better than the calculated results in [8].

For solid CO2 from 20 to 76 K, the rotational free energy accounts for 75.5 to 70.7% of the
total energy, the rotational energy accounts for 75.97 to 74.24% of the total free energy and the
rotational heat capacity at constant volume accounts for 99.66 to 70.68% of the total heat capacity
at constant volume. The rotational entropy is negative while the vibrational entropy and the total
entropy are positive. In comparison with the experimental data [7], the discrepancy in the total
heat capacity at constant volume is from 17.68 to 45.54% in the 20 to 36 K temperature interval.

For solid N2O from 10 to 76 K, the rotational free energy contributes to the total free
energy from 59.5 to 54.7%,the rotational energy accounts for 60 to 58.9% of the total energy and

the rotational heat capacity at constant volume accounts for 15 - 50% of the total heat capacity
at constant volume. From 10 to 35.6 K, the rotational entropy increases and then decreases. The
rotational entropy is negative while the vibrational entropy and the total entropy are positive. The
values of the total heat capacity at constant volume are in relatively good agreement with the
experimental data [1] in the 10 to 76 K temperature interval.

For solid β-N2 from 36 to 60 K, the rotational free energy accounts for 7.55 to 7.67% of
the total free energy, the rotational entropy accounts for 24 to 52.8% of the total entropy and the
rotational heat capacity at constant volume accounts for 46.64 to 55.68% of the total heat capacity
at constant volume. At 36 K, the rotational energy accounts for 7.01% of the total energy and when
temperature increases, this contribution decreases. In comparison with the experimental data [9],
the discrepancy in the total heat capacity at constant volume is 21.77%. The calculated total heat
capacity at constant volume is better than the calculated results in [1].

3. Conclusion
The theoretical results obtained in the previous paper are applied to the case of α-N2,
α-CO, CO2, N2O crystals with FCC structure and β-N2 crystal with HCP structure. Here we
only use the Lennard-Jones (6-12) pair potential for vibrational quantities and the quadrupole
-quadrupole potential for rotational quantities. We calculated some thermodynamic quantities such
as the nearest neighbor distance, the lattice constant, the free energy, the energy, the entropy and
the heat capacity at constant volume for above mentioned crystals at different temperatures and
zero pressure. Some obtained values are in relatively good agreement with the experimental data.
