The spectral absorptivities of the ν3 and ν5 fundamental and the ν4 + ν5 combination bands of acetylene have been measured at low resolution for temperatures between 290 and 600 K. These measurements allow the determination of spectral-mean (narrow-band) parameters for the three bands based on the Elsasser and Goody models and the correlation of the band absorptance data using the Edwards exponential wide-band model. Charts for the total emissivity and Planck mean absorption coefficient have been developed for acetylene based on the wide-band parameters.
