Description/Abstract

A model is proposed for the two-particle distribution functions for the surface region of a system composed of two oppositely charged species with identical hard sphere repulsions. The distribution functions are formed from those for the bulk fluid by incorporating a cutoff corresponding to the surface and a multiplying factor defined so as to guarantee electroneutrality while maintaining the proper symmetry. Various methods for doing this are discussed. Good agreement is obtained for surface tension and surface energy. Density oscillations are predicted.
