Dilute-gas properties of the monatomic gases and their mixtures from the MSK potential

  • W. Ameling
  • K. Lucas


The three-parameter MSK potential is used to calculate the dilute-gas properties of the monatomic gases and their mixtures. The parameters are fitted to data of the second virial coefficient and the Joule-Thomson coefficient; the calculations of all other thermophysical properties are predictions. For mixtures, universal combination rules for the potential parameters are used. It is shown that a consistent representation of the gas data of the monatomic systems is possible.
