The **Mayer f-function**, or

*f-bond*is defined as:

where

- is the Boltzmann constant.
- is the temperature.
- is the intermolecular pair potential.

Diagrammatically the Mayer *f*-function is written as

## Hard sphere model

For the hard sphere model the Mayer *f*-function becomes:

where is the hard sphere diameter.
