Thermodynamic properties of charged ions

  1. Jan 13, 2010 #1
    Hello! I would like to ask anyone who can have documents about the thermodynamic properties of CsCl, Cs2Cl+, CsCl2-,Cs3Cl2+,Cs2cl3- to send me the links please. or anything else that can be related to thermodynamic properties of heavy ions.
    Actually i want to make a research on their thermodynamic properties and see why heavier ions are the most used in space craft rather than lighter ones.
    Thank you

    Heavier ions carry more momentum per ion if accelerated by the same potential difference.
