Abstract:

A method for measuring interfacial tension was developed, employing a novel modification of the drop weight method. Key innovations include 1 detection of passage of drops by a high frequency coil 2 measurement of the delivered volume by continuous weighing on an automatic balance 3 flow control by a long thin capillary e.g. less than 0.5 mm OD, and less than 0.1 mm ID which did not interfere with the weighing.
