Title

Conformation Dependent Transport Coefficients of Once-Broken Rods

Abstract

A method related to that of Kirkwood and Riseman is used to calculate the steady flow intrinsic viscosity as a function of the angle χ between the two arms of a once-broken rod. The translational diffusion coefficient and sedimentation coefficient are also obtained in terms of χ. The explicit χ dependence in the results allows for the likely possibility that the two arms of a real broken rod molecule will not be connected by a perfectly flexible joint and thus that the conformation of the molecule will be described by a nonrandom distribution of χ.
