    • Equilibrium properties of a semiclassical fluid with square-well plus hard core potential

      A K Sinha S K Sinha

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A cluster expansion theory, in which the quantum hard sphere system is taken as a reference system and the attractive interactions as a perturbation, is applied to calculate the equilibrium properties of the square-well fluid in the semiclassical limit. The radial distribution function and direct correlation function are obtained using the exponential approximation. The isothermal compressibility is also evaluated.

      L Rai S K Sinha

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      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.

      U N Singh S K Sinha

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The radial distribution function (RDF) and thermodynamic properties of a two-dimensional hard-disc mixture are calculated by using the perturbation theory. Numerical results are given for theRDF, pressure and excess-free energy of the binary mixture of both additive and non-additive hard discs. It is found that the thermodynamic properties of the binary mixture of non-additive hard discs increase with Δ, the non-additive parameter.

      B M Mishra S K Sinha

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Analytic expressions for the thermodynamic properties of a classical two-dimensional square-well fluid and the first quantum correction to them are derived using the Barker-Henderson perturbation theory. Numerical results are reported. It is found that the quantum effect, which increases with increase of density, is largely determined by the hard-core and the attractive tail has a minor effect at high density.

    • Equilibrium theory of two-dimensional simple liquids

      T P Singh S K Sinha

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Using the Wigner-Kirkwood expansion and bare Lennard-Jones (LJ) (12-6) potential, an effectiveLJ potential is derived, which includes the quantum effects through the expressions of the effective diameter(T, λ) and well-depth $$\bar \varepsilon \left( {T,\lambda } \right)$$(T, λ). We use theWCA perturbation theory to calculate the free energy and pressure for theLJ and effectiveLJ potentials. Simple analytic expressions are given for the reference system and the first order correction calculated. The results are quite good at high density. The quantum effects on the free energy and pressure are also discussed.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Thermodynamic properties of molecular fluid mixtures of hard ellipsoids are calculated. Numerical results are given for equation of state and excess-free energy of the binary mixture of both additive and non-additive hard ellipsoids. It is found that the equation of state and free energy of mixtures increase with increase of anisotropy parameterx0.

    • Equilibrium properties of hard non-sphere fluids

      T P Singh J P Sinha S K Sinha

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Derivation of the thermodynamic properties of fluids of hard non-spherical molecules of arbitrary symmetry is based on the decoupling approximation. Theoretical expressions are given and calculations made for the equation of state and virial coefficients for hard ellipsoids. These results are compared with Monte Carlo values and show fair agreement in all cases. The theoretical predictions for the equation of state for binary mixtures are compared with the Monte Carlo results for hard spheres and hard prolate spherocylinders. Theoretical expressions for the first order quantum correction to the free energy, pressure and virial coefficients are also given. The quantum effects increase with increase of density and with increase of anisotropy parameter.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The perturbation theory with non-spherical reference system is used for molecular fluid with angle-dependent square-well type potential. Simple analytic expressions are given for the thermodynamic properties such as the equation of state, excess free energy per particle, internal energy and internal heat capacity. The effects of anisotropy on the thermodynamic properties are discussed. The anisotropy effects increase with increase of density and decrease of temperature and depends on the anisotropy parameterx0.

    • Perturbation theory for thermodynamic properties of a ν-dimensional square-well fluid

      J P Sinha S K Sinha

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The Barker-Henderson perturbation theory is used for a ν-dimensional fluid with square-well potential. Analytic expressions are given for the equation of state, excess free energy per particle and internal energy. The numerical results are discussed. A significant feature is the increase of the thermodynamic properties with increasing dimensionality.
