Abstract : Utilizing the computer program developed by Law and Bristow accurate tables for the gas dynamic and thermodynamic properties behind incident and reflected shock waves has been constructed for gaseous chlorine in dissociation equilibrium. The values of the temperature and pressure behind the respective shocks have been computed within 0.1% of the exact root. Second order correction factors for the molecular partition function have also been taken into acount. The initial temperature is taken to be 298.13K. The initial pressures cover the range from 0.01 to 2000 mm Hg and the incident shock Mach number is varied in increments of 0.1 from 1.1 to 16. Tables with initial temperatures 290K and 295K for initial pressures 1 mm Hg and 10 mm Hg have also been incorporated to illustrate the dependence of the normal shock properties on the initial temperature. In additional a table of data is included which corresponds to vibration-vibration equilibrium for an initial temperature of 298.13K and initial pressure of 1 mm Hg. (Author)
