Abstract : A Morse function is used as the form of the volume dependent energy term in the expression for the Helmholtz free energy of a Debye solid. The consequent form of the Mie-Gruneisen equation of state is then obtained using an adjusted form of the Slater relation for the Gruneisen parameter. Theoretical Hugoniots are then calculated for Al, Cu, and Ag and found to agree well with experimental Hugoniots over a broad pressure range. (Author)
