A field theoretical approach was used to devise a phenomenological expression for the Helmholtz free energy of fluids that accounts for molecular structures. The expression contains a sufficient number of terms to model the phenomenon of interest. This approach was applied to determine the position-orientation density of water molecules at the liquid-vapor interface.
