Thermodynamic properties of ionized gases at high temperatures have been calculated by a new model based on local equilibrium conditions. Calculations have been done for nitrogen, oxygen, air, argon, and helium. The temperature range is 300–100,000 K. Thermodynamic properties include specific heat capacity, density, mole fraction of particles, and enthalpy. The model has been developed using statistical thermodynamics methods. Results have been compared with other researchers and the agreement is good.
