Accuracy of the Modified Eucken Correction to the Thermal Conductivity of Molecular Gases

  • V. S. Galkin
  • S. V. Rusakov


The results of calculating the thermal conductivities of nine low-density molecular gases N2, O2, NO, CO, CO2, N2O, CH4, CF4, and SF6 obtained using the modified Eucken correction are compared with the standard results.
