Temperature dependence of the diffusion coefficients of gases

  • É. M. Nafikov
  • A. G. Usmanov


The use of empirical power laws to calculate the diffusion coefficients of gases is considered. The method of similitude is used to obtain generalized relations which permit the calculation of the diffusion coefficients of gases in temperature ranges not covered by experiment.
