Question:

The discussion in the chapter focuses on the square-well fluid, but the same reasoning is equally applicable for any model potential function. Illustrate your grasp of this reasoning with some sketches analogous to those in the chapter.

(a) Sketch the radial distribution function versus radial distance for a low-density Lennard- Jones (LJ) fluid. Describe in words why it looks like that.

(b) Repeat the exercise for the high-density LJ fluid. Also sketch on the same plot the radial distribution function of a hard-sphere fluid at the same density. Compare and contrast the hard-sphere fluid to the LJ fluid at high density.
