    • Prediction of ultrasonic velocity and intermolecular free-length and their correlation with interaction in binary liquid mixtures

      J D Pandey Gyan Prakash Dubey B P Shukla S N Dubey

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The ultrasonic velocities of binary liquid mixtures of 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane with benzene, toluene,p-xylene, acetone and cyclohexane have been evaluated at 298.15 and 308.15 K using Schaaff’s collision factor theory (CFT), Jacobson’s free length theory (FLT), Nomoto’s relation and Van Dael ideal mixing relation. The ideal mixing relation gives the minimum deviation for all the systems except with acetone. The intermolecular free length has also been evaluated using ultrasonic and thermodynamic methods and the limitations of both the methods have been discussed. The deviations in ultrasonic velocity and intermolecular free length are discussed in terms of weak interaction between unlike molecules.

    • Internal pressure, ultrasonic velocity and viscosity of multi-component liquid systems

      J D Pandey A K Shukla Neelima Tripathi G P Dubey

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Ultrasonic velocity, density and viscosity were measured in two ternary liquid systems namely,n-pentane +n-hexane + benzene(I) andn-hexane + cyclohexane + benzene(II) and one quaternary liquid system,n-pentane +n-hexane + benzene + toluene (III). The experimental as well as literature values of thermal expansion coefficient and iso-thermal compressibility of pure liquid components were utilized to deduce the ideal value of internal pressure and excess internal pressure for the above liquid systems at 298·15K using two different approaches. In the conventional approach one needs the experimental values ofα andβT of mixtures for computing internal pressure, which was not possible. The second method which is proposed here utilizes only the density, ultrasonic velocity and viscosity data of the mixture. This method is used in computing internal pressure and its excess value for multicomponent liquid systems. A satisfactory agreement has been observed.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Sound velocity in three binary liquid mixtures benzene+cyclohexane (I), cyclohexane+carbontetrachloride (II) and benzene+carbontetrachloride (III) has been measured. Significant structure and Flory — Patterson theories have been employed to evaluate ultrasonic velocity in the systems. The values are in good agreement with the experimental ones. A comparative study of significant structure theory and Flory-Patterson Theory has been made. Both the theories give satisfactory results for the three liquid mixtures.

    • Isothermal compressibility and sound velocity of binary liquid systems: Application of hard sphere models

      J D Pandey P Jain V Vyas

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Sound velocity and density were measured in six binary liquid mixtures namely,n-heptane+toluene (I);n-heptane+n-hexane (II); toluene+n-hexane (III); cyclohexane+n-heptane (IV); cyclohexane+n-hexane (V), andn-decane+n-hexane (VI) at 298.15 K. The experimental isothermal compressibility has been evaluated from measured values of density and sound velocity. The isothermal compressibility of these mixtures has been calculated theoretically using different models for the hard sphere equation of state and also using Flory’s statistical theory. The computed values of isothermal compressibility were also compared with the experimentally evaluated values. A satisfactory agreement has been observed.

      J D Pandey Ranjan Dey D K Dwivedi

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Various empirical theories of ultrasonic velocity have been applied to three binary liquid mixtures, under pressures up to 200 MPa and their validity have been tested. A pressure dependent study of ultrasonic velocities has been made at 303.15 K. The agreement between theory and experiment is found to be quite satisfactory.

    • Non-linearity parameter B/A of binary liquid mixtures at elevated pressures

      J D Pandey J Chhabra R Dey V Sanguri R Verma

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      When sound waves of high amplitude propagate, several non-linear effects occur. Ultrasonic studies in liquid mixtures provide valuable information about structure and interaction in such systems. The present investigation comprises of theoretical evaluation of the acoustic non-linearity parameter B/A of four binary liquid mixtures using Tong and Dong equation at high pressures and T=303.15 K. Thermodynamic method has also been used to calculate the non-linearity parameter after making certain approximations.

      Ranjan Dey Arvind K Singh N K Soni B S Bisht J D Pandey

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Computation of non-linearity parameter (B/A), molecular radius (rm) and intermolecular free length (Lf) for H2O, C6H6, C6H12, CH3OH, C2H5OH and their deuterium-substituted compounds have been carried out at four different temperatures, viz., 293.15, 303.15, 313.15 and 323.15 K. The aim of the investigation is an attempt to study the isotopic effects on the non-linearity parameter and the physicochemical properties of the liquids, which in turn has been used to study their effect on the intermolecular interactions produced thereof.
