Abstract

The one-parameter equation of state (EoS), wherein the bulk modulus at ambient pressure is the only unknown parameter and the pressure derivative of the bulk modulus is fixed by requiring that the state of matter approaches Thomas Fermi state under strong compression, has been used to compute the pressure, bulk modulus, and pressure derivative of bulk modulus as functions of volume compression for epsilon iron. To earth-core pressures (x2DC;363 GPa), these data are in excellent agreement with the 300 K data obtained from the analysis of the PREM tabulation using K-primed equation. Even to x2DC;2300 GPa, the two sets of data show excellent agreement. This agreement suggests that compression behavior of the core alloy deduced at 300 K is close to that of pure epsilon iron. The pressure volume data for platinum to x2DC;650 GPa computed from one-parameter EoS are in excellent agreement with those obtained from the first-principle calculations and shock-wave experiments. This agreement does not strengthen the suggestion in the literature that the platinum pressure scale contains large systematic errors. The breakdown of the fundamental assumption made in high-pressure X-ray diffraction experiments that the pressure on the sample equals that on the pressure standard is shown to cause the discrepancy between the compression data on epsilon iron from laboratory source and those predicted from one-parameter EoS.
