The statistical mechanics of argon

Fisher, Robert Alexander


Liquid and dense gaseous argon has been simulated (using the Barker-Bobetic potential) by means of molecular dynamics techniques similar to those developed by Rahman. The equilibrium properties have been calculated using 108 particles interacting through a truncated potential, together with perturbation theory to correct for the finite size of the systems well as quantum and three-body effects. Good agreement with the experimental values of the pressure and internal energy has been...[Show more]
