Explicit Approximation to Thermal Diffusion Factor in Isotopic 3-component Mixture
When a gas mixture consists of isotopes and squares of relative mass differences among the isotopes are small enough to be negligible, an approximation to a thermal diffusion factor in a 3-component mixture was derived analytically and was found to be the same as the binary thermal diffusion factor. Relative errors between exact and the approximation of the thermal diffusion factor in a 3-component argon 36-38-40 isotope mixture were less than 0.01.
