    • Abstract


      Activation energies for viscous flow and conductivity are computed from experimental values of RF conductivity (frequency 400 kHz) at different temperatures for eight polar liquids. It is observed that for aliphatic alcohols the activation energy for conductivity is greater than that for viscous flow. However, their ratio is slightly greater than unity and is different for different alcohols whereas for nonassociating polar liquids the ratio is almost equal to unity. The dependence of conductivity on viscosity for the liquid alcohols does not follow the Walden’s law but can be well represented by Adamczewskis relation.
