We calculate quantities such as g = b/l and h = (ft)b/(ft)t for regular star-branched polymer with and without excluded volume. We have applied a numerical method introduced by Barrett for the linear chain and have solved the integral equations which are conducive to calculate the translational coefficient friction and the intrinsic viscosity in the Kirkwood-Riseman theory. We utilize preaveraging but avoid other approximations. In general, we obtain values which have a better accord with experimental data than traditional Kirkwood-Riseman and Zimm-Kilb formulas.
