Spontaneous magnetization Ms of the ferromagnetic compound Mn5Ge3 with the Curie temperature TC=305 K has been studied in the temperature range from 2 to 400 K. The relationships between the magnetic part of the heat capacity (CMAG), the magnetic part of the volume thermal expansion coefficient (TEC) MAG, and the Ms for the compound Mn5Ge3 have been considered. It has been found that the magnetic part of the heat capacity can be well approximated by the dependence CMAG(T)=a×|dMs2/dT|–b×|dMs4/dT| with a>0 and b>0, and the magnetic part of the TEC, by the dependence  MAG=C1×dMs2/dT+C2×dMs4/dT with C1<0 and C2>0 in the whole temperature. It is assumed that the main sources in the formation of the observed CMAG(T) and MAG(T) dependences are the changes in the elastic, magnetoelastic, magnetovolume, and magnetostatic energies of the sample that appear as a result of the spontaneous magnetostrictive deformation with temperature changing.
