FIG. 1.

Variation of with for three values of for the Lennard-Jones potential at . Also shown is the mean field theory (MFT) result.

FIG. 2.

Equilibrium vapor pressure and pressure in the HTA using Carnahan-Starling (solid lines) and Percus-Yevick (dashed lines) equations of state. The dotted lines show the MFT results. The triangles (inverted for ) show the values extracted from molecular dynamics simulations by Lotfi et al. (Ref. 16).

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Variation of surface tension with temperature in the HTA (upper two lines) and using MFT. The dashed lines show results from square-gradient theory and the squares are the molecular dynamics values of Mecke et al. (Ref. 18).

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Variation of Tolman length with temperature in the HTA (upper two lines) and using MFT. The dashed lines show results from square-gradient theory.
