The heat capacity of a Ni36Nb24Zr40 glassy alloy was measured by adiabatic calorimetry from 13 to 300 K. The smoothed values of molar heat capacity were calculated from the data using a least-squares method. The standard enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs energy were calculated from the smoothed heat capacity values. Assuming H(0)=0 and S(0)=0 at 0 K, the heat capacity, enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs energy at 298.15K are 24.91 J·K-1·mol-1, 5.252 kJ·mol -1, 36.45 J ·K-1·mol-1, and -5.615 kJ·mol-1, respectively.
