Abstract

Equations have been reported in the literature to predict the surface tension of binary liquid mixtures. However, the equations involve large number of variables and are very complex. In the present article an attempt is made to propose an empirical equation to predict the surface tension of binary organic liquid mixtures. A simple equation, ‘Hadkar Equation’, has been proposed and was used to calculate the surface tension of binary liquid mixtures that have already been reported in the literature and was found to give the results close to the reported values. To verify the utility of the equation for the prediction of surface tension of liquid mixture, the surface tension of a few organic binary liquid mixtures was determined using drop weight method. The ‘Hadkar Equation’, was found to be useful in the prediction of surface tension of organic binary liquids having weak force of attraction.
