The particles in a LennardJones fluid have the parameters:
r_{0}=3.6 A (1 A = 10^{10} m) and V_{0} = 0.2
Kcal/mol. What is the energy of interaction between two particles at seperation
of (a) 2.7 A, (b) 3.6 A, (c) 5.5 A, and (d) 10.0 A respectively?

Why do we need to study the statistical mechanics of
a fluid?
