Abstract: With a basis upon the semi-classical kinetic theory of polyatomic gases and critically examined data, a new representation of the viscosity and thermal conductivity coefficients of normal hydrogen is created in the limit of zero density as a function of temperature. Measurements are made with the transient hot wire method, among others, and are taken between 20 and 2200 Kelvin. The highest uncertainties are 2%, and lowest being 0.5%. An attempt to represent this data with a correlation consistent with the behavior of other polyatomic gases did not offer favorable results, as well as an attempt to expand the correlation based upon the Wang Chang and Uhlenbeck kinetic theory.
