Mercury vapor transfer coefficients

  • E. S. Kovalenko
  • V. A. Laptev


Average effective electron-neutral diffusion coefficients are calculated for mercury vapor in the temperature range 3000–20,000°K. Electrical conductivity and electronic thermal conductivity of mercury plasma are determined over the pressure interval 0.00001–40 MPa in the second approximation of the Chapman-Enskog method.
