    Because of the polar character of methyl fluoride its virial coefficients cannot be described by a formula of the Lennard-Jones type for the molecular interaction. On extending this formula with a term, representing the dipole interaction, a good agreement was found between experimental and calculated values of the second and third virial coefficients. Only two constants had to be determined, the third constant occuring in the formula for the intermolecular field was taken from dielectric constant measurements.
