This thesis is concerned with providing basic information on the experimentally-measured adlabatio elastic constants of rubidium chloride over the temperature range of 300Â® K to 4.2* K, From the elastic constants, the characteristic lebye temperature (9^) has been calculated for T = 0* K. Utilizing the Debye temperature, one can make a rather accurate calculation of the oalorimetric properties of a solid from its elastic properties. The elastic constants have also been used to oaloulate the compressibility as a function of temperature, and using the compressibility, the lattice energy of 0* K has been calculated for the crystal.
