Is there any way to derive the viscosity [tex]\mu[/tex] of an ideal gas from kinetic theory?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also: Is there any way to derive the mass diffusitivity [tex] D[/tex] of an ideal gas from kinetic theory?.

Another one: does it make sense to talk about the mass diffusivity of an individual gas (for instance [tex] D_i[/tex]), or such magnitude is always referred to a gaseous mixture (i.e [tex] D_{ij}[/tex])?.

Some web link of bibliography would be greatly appreciated.
