    • Abstract


      The perturbation theory of Weeks, Chandler and Anderson (WCA) has been employed to calculate the free energy and compressibility factor of simple dense fluids characterised by a double Yukawa potential. The structure factor has been calculated in the random phase approximation together with theWCA prescription for the division of the pair potential. The calculated values are in excellent agreement with experimental results.
