Description

h_vap: heat of vaporization (J / mol)

Usage

1
.get_hvap(T_leaf, unitless)

Arguments

T_leaf

Leaf temperature in Kelvin

unitless

Logical. Should function use parameters with units? The function is faster when FALSE, but input must be in correct units or else results will be incorrect without any warning.

Details

Heat of vaporization: The heat of vaporization (h_vap) is a function of temperature. I used data from on temperature and h_vap from Nobel (2009, Appendix 1) to estimate a linear regression. See Examples.

Value

Value in J/mol of class units

# Heat of vaporization and temperature
## data from Nobel (2009)

T_K <- 273.15 + c(0, 10, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60)
h_vap <- 1e3 * c(45.06, 44.63, 44.21, 44.00, 
                 43.78, 43.35, 42.91, 42.47) # (in J / mol)
                 
fit <- lm(h_vap ~ T_K)

## coefficients are 56847.68250 J / mol and 43.12514 J / (mol K)

coef(fit) 

T_leaf <- 298.15
h_vap <- set_units(56847.68250, J / mol) - 
           set_units(43.12514, J / mol / K) * set_units(T_leaf, K)

## h_vap at 298.15 K is 43989.92 [J/mol]

set_units(h_vap, J / mol)

tealeaves:::.get_hvap(set_units(298.15, K), FALSE)
