Individual and Final Results

Surface tension (ST) of test substance (0.09 g/L in demineralized water) at 20 °C:

Value 1               61.07 mN/m

Value 2               61.03 mN/m

Value 3               61.12 mN/m

Value 4               61.11 mN/m

Value 5               61.10 mN/m

Value 6               61.08 mN/m

Value 7               61.07 mN/m

Value 8               61.06 mN/m

Value 9               61.06 mN/m

Value 10             61.07 mN/m

Mean value:       61.08 mN/m

Correction factor 1:   0.954

ST Value (σ) after first correction:   58.27 mN/m

 

The second correction (Harkins and Jordan) was calculated with the following formula:

Surface tension (final corrected) = 0.00085 σ2+ 0.96115 σ - 1.594

Surface tension (final corrected) = 0.0085 * (58.27 mN/m)2+ 0.96115 * 58.27 mN/m – 1.594 = 57.3 mN/m

 

The surface tension of the test substance is σ =57.3 mN/m.
