This function applies the Masson and Saxena modification of the Wassiljewa Equation for the thermal conductivity for gas mixtures of n elements at low pressure.
For nonpolar gas mixtures errors will generally be less than 3 to 4%. For mixtures of nonpolar-polar and polar-polar gases, errors greater than 5 to 8% may be expected. For mixtures in which the sizes and polarities of the constituent molecules are not greatly different, the thermal conductivity can be estimated satisfactorily by a mole fraction average of the pure component conductivities.
