Semi-Empirical Calculation of the Transport Properties of N2-Noble Gases Mixtures at Low Density by the Inversion Method
Behzad Haghighi, M. Fatehabadi and M.M. Papari

Viscosity, diffusion coefficients, and thermal diffusion factors for five equimolar binary gas mixtures of N2-Noble gases were determined based on the principle of corresponding states of viscosity using the inversion technique. The Lennard-Jones (LJ)12-6 potential energy function was used as the initial model potential required by the technique. The interaction potential energies from the inversion procedure reproduce viscosity within 1%, diffusion coefficients within 5%, and thermal diffusion factor within 25%.
