Argon
Argon (Ar) has a mass of 39.948 umas. Sadus and Prausnitz have shown that three-body repulsion makes a significant contribution to three-body interactions in the liquid phase ^{[1]} (for use of the Axilrod-Teller interaction see ^{[2]} ^{[3]}). However, the generic Lennard-Jones model has been frequently used due to its simplicity; some parameters are quoted in the next section. A specific interatomic potential for Ar has been proposed by Aziz ^{[4]}.
