We intent to study, by means of the molecular dynamics method, the atomic interactions of argon with a bidimensional sheet of graphene. We will implement a code to simulate the system and calculate the thermodynamics properties of interest. We also intend to study the adsoption of argon atoms by graphene. The results will be compared with experimental data and also possibly with results from simulation from literature. (AU)
