    • Abstract


      The radial distribution function for a fluid in which the molecules interactvia a triangular well potential is considered. Expanding the radial distribution function in pwoers of βɛ, where ɛ is the depth of the potential andβ=1/kBT the first-order terms are calculated analytically using the Percus-Yevick theory in the Baxter’s formulation. The first-order terms in the direct correlation functionc(r) are also calculated. The first- and second-order terms in the free energy obtained from the energy equation of state are calculated and compared with other calculations.
