The following window displays an example MKS JSON file. The application generated a file containing the normal boiling point, melting point and critical temperature for seven common chemicals.
|Browse button for entering the name of the export file.
|The entity type being displayed. The current entity types are Summary, Chemical, Element and Reference.
|List of entities selected to be exported.
Units of measure option:
|The properties to be exported.
|The datum status values to be exported.
|Formatting options specifying how the exported file will be written. Typically you would select both options, including line breaks and indentation, if you wish to generate a readable file.
|Option for including a space after the ":" separator. This option is only for readability preference.
JSON files can become very large, even too large to be properly handled by various software programs. We recommend that you judiciously select only those entities and properties needed for your current task.
|A JSON file containing several physical property data for seven common chemicals.
|A JSON file containing liquid density data as a function of temperature for seven common chemicals.
|A Python script for reading JSON data files and graphically displaying JSON data.
Python is an interpreted programming language. (More information is available at Python.org.) Python can easily read and manipulate data from JSON files. In this example, we used a python script to graph the liquid density as a function of temperature for several common chemicals. (The files used in this example are listed in the example files table shown above.)
