Abstract : The dielectric constant of nonpolar fluids does not agree with the ClausiusMossotti formula. The deviation is calculated taking the induced dipoledipole interactions into consideration. Since the induced dipole moments suggest that the molecules are most likely deformed, the theories developed by Kirkwood, Jvon and others are generalized to treat nonspherical molecules.A new mathematical method is introduced, and the dielectric constant is calculated as a function of the molecular anisotropy. In particular, the socalled rotational fluctuation is found to be composed of two terms, one representing the optical and the other corresponding to the geometrical anisotropy. (Author)
