A simple theory, based on the physical interpretation of the reciprocal of activity, is developed to evaluate the thermodynamic properties of a two-dimensional fluid in the semi-classical limit. The theory is applied to calculate the quantum corrections to the equation of state and excess free energy of two-dimensional fluids, whose molecules interactvia hard-disc and square-well potential. It is found that the quantum effect increases with the increase of density and decrease of temperature.
