Diamagnetism of Liquid Mixtures

Article metrics


CRITICISMS of our magnetic susceptibility measurements of mixtures of acetone and chloroform1 have been made by Ranganadham,2 van Aubel,3 Buchner,4 and Ramachandra Rao and Sivaramakrishnan.5 We have therefore repeated the susceptibility measurements of this series of liquids by the Gouy method, using a magnet with a field strength of about 3300 gauss. The apparatus not being available in this laboratory, Dr. S. Sugden, to whom we wish to express our thanks, kindly permitted us to make use of his apparatus at Birkbeck College. With this particular apparatus values of the susceptibility can be obtained which are accurate to within ±0.02 × 10-6.
