The present paper deals with a numerical solution of the two-dimensional problem of helium and methane molecules motion through an ultra-thin layer of a porous material composed of spherical nanoparticles of the same size. The interaction potential “nanoparticle-molecule” is obtained by integrating paired molecular interactions over the nanoparticle volume. Using the method of classical molecular dynamics, permeability of a layer having the size of about 10−8 m is studied.
