In this Research Note the Zwanzig’s formulation of the Stokes–Einstein (SE) relation for simple atomistic fluids is re-examined. It is shown that the value of the coefficient in SE relation depends on the ratio of the transverse and longitudinal sound velocities. In some cases, this ratio can be directly related to the pair interaction potential operating in fluids and thus there can be a certain level of predictivity regarding the value of this coefficient. This Research Note provides some evidence in favor of this observation. In particular, analyzing the situation in several model systems such as one-component plasma, Yukawa, inverse-power-law, Lennard-Jones, and hard-sphere fluids, it is demonstrated that there are certain correlations between the interaction softness and the coefficient in SE relation. The SE coefficient is also re-evaluated for various liquid metals at the melting temperature, for which necessary data are available.
