Undergraduate Students at the College of Wooster Publish Three Papers

Don Jacobs, professor of physics at The College of Wooster and principal investigator on a NASA Fundamental Physics grant, published three journal articles in The Journal of Chemical Physics with his undergraduate student collaborators. One paper resulted from work performed with Prof. Sandra Greer and her students at the University of Maryland at College Park: Krishna Pendyala, Xiangyun Gu, Kevin P. Andrews, Karen Gruner, D.T. Jacobs, and S.C. Greer, "Living Poly(alpha-methylstyrene) near the polymerization line: VIII. mass density, viscosity, and surface tension in tetrahydrofuran" (J. Chem. Phys. 114, 4312-4322 (2001)). Two additional articles were published from collaborations with undergraduate students at The College of Wooster: A.W. Nowicki, Madhujit Ghosh, S.M. McClellan, and D.T. Jacobs, "Heat Capacity and Turbidity Near the Critical Point of Succinonitrile-Water" (J. Chem. Phys. 114, 4625-4633 (2001)). And E.R. Oby and D.T. Jacobs , "Heat Capacity of the Liquid-Liquid Mixture Perfluoroheptane and 2,2,4-Trimethylpentane Near the Critical Point" (J. Chem. Phys. 114, 4918-4921 (2001)).
