Contribution to the theory of thermomagnetic phenomena with the range of intermediate pressures
Abstract
A kinetic theory is proposed for thermomagnetic phenomena in multiatomic gases (influence of external fields on transfer processes) at intermediate pressures where the molecular mean free path is comparable to the characteristic dimension. An integral kinetic equation is derived for a gas with rotational degrees of freedom situated in a magnetic field. The equations makes allowance both for intermolecular collisions and nonspherical collisions between molecules and walls. The distribution function of a gas confined between two surfaces in a magnetic field at pressures where the mean free path is one tenth of the characteristic dimension is determined.
