 June 22, 2003, 04:13 Sutherland's Law Coefficients for Argon #1 Michael Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, Does anyone know where I could find values for the sutherland's law coefficients that define the viscosity of Argon (S,Mu0 and T0)? I have searched the web with google extensivley but cannot find a reference thanks

 June 23, 2003, 01:30 Re: Sutherland's Law Coefficients for Argon #4 Rami Guest   Posts: n/a Michael, I have used data from two sources: CRC handbook and data in the NIST online database (http://properties.nist.gov/SemiProp/Gases/ar.html ). I then fitted it to Sutherland's law, resulting in S = 164.2K, Tref = 1000K, MUref = 55.8[microPa-s]

 June 24, 2003, 03:20 Re: Sutherland's Law Coefficients for Argon #6 Rami Guest   Posts: n/a Apurva, Sorry for arguing, but I have put your coefficients in Sutherland's law and plotted it on top of mine and the data points from CRC and NIST. It falls somewhat below the actual viscosity, whereas my fit is closer. You may check it for yourself. for your convenience, the data is: p=1bar source CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC CRC NIST NIST NIST NIST T[K] 85 90 100 120 140 160 180 200 220 240 260 280 300 320 340 360 380 400 500 600 700 800 900 1000 visc.[uPa-s] 278.8 7.5 8.2 9.8 11.4 13.0 14.5 16.0 17.5 18.9 20.3 21.6 22.9 24.2 25.4 26.6 27.8 28.8 34.2 39.0 43.6 47.9 51.9 55.8 References: CRC handbook '97-'98, pp. 6-18, 6-194, 6-201. NIST: http://properties.nist.gov/SemiProp/Gases/ar.html Notes: o p=1bar o At T=85K Ar is condensed o T=1000K is my choice of Tref

 June 24, 2003, 05:46 Re: Sutherland's Law Coefficients for Argon #7 Michael Elford Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks both of you for you help. I worked out the relative difference in the models to be 13% (independent of temperature ofcourse). Either one will work ok for me.

However, he simply reproduces the numbers from another reference (Hilsenrath, J., et al, Tables of Thermodynamic and Transport Properties, National Bureau of Standards, 1955.)

The NIST chemistry webbook only provides data to 700 K to me when i request for isobaric data of Ar at 1 bar. Is your Tref really 1000K?
