Abstract : The experimentally determined electronic radial distribution function for liquid nitrogen at 7 atmospheres and -193C is reported, indicating an average coordination shell centred at 4.0A containing 15 molecules. Subsidiary peaks in the distribution at about 2.2A are shown to very likely arise from truncation of the Fourier integral. Analysis reveals that a restricted increase in the range of diffraction data may actually increase the prominence of certain error features. (Author)
