The results of the first paper of this series, and a generalization of a method due to Eyring, are used to obtain an expression for the free volume of a liquid, Vf=fb3g3/h3n3×[RT/ΔEv]3, and an equation for the entropy of vaporization. ΔS=R[ln VglnVlln β+3lnβ+3ln(ΔH/RT−1)]. Here β=γfb3g3/h3n3, where γ measures the interference in the liquid with the internal motions (rotations, vibrations) of the molecule, and f, b, g, h, n are quantities which depend on the geometry of the liquid and the energetic and dynamic interaction of the molecules. The rule of Barclay and Butler, that the 25°C value of ΔS for various pure liquids has a rough linear relationship to the corresponding ΔH of vaporization, is shown to imply a general tendency for a liquid to have a smaller β the larger its ΔH of vaporization. In many cases this means a smaller γ, resulting from increased interference with rotation of the molecules in the liquid. Pitzer's perfect liquid has a value β = 16, sensibly independent of ΔH. This is taken to mean that in such a liquid as benzene or carbon tetrachloride (β≈6) the interference with free rotation is considerable. For CS2 there is evidence that the intermolecular force field differs from ``normal,'' and the difference in potential function between liquid metals and normal liquids shows up strongly. Accepting the value β = 16 found for the ideal liquid as a norm, it is proposed to call R ln (16/β) for any liquid the hypothetical entropy defect (HED) and interpret it as the amount by which the entropy of the liquid (referred to the same substance as a perfect gas) is less than that of the ideal liquid in the ``corresponding'' state.
