Application of the theory of similarity for purposes of generalizing the thermal-diffusion factor for mixtures of multiatomic nonpolar gases

  • A. F. Zolotukhina


The thermal-diffusion factor of 14 nonpolar-gas mixtures has been generalized on the basis of similarity theory. The theoretical values of αth obtained on the basis of this generalized relationship are compared with the experimental data.
