Diamagnetism of Liquid Mixtures

Article metrics


AN investigation of binary mixtures of diamagnetic substances (one of the substances being water) made in this laboratory has shown a small but definite departure from additivity. The measurements are made with an improved Curie-Cheneveau magnetic balance.1 In view of the controversy concerning chloroform-acetone mixtures, it has been of interest to examine this system.
