The refractivity of liquid mixtures

  • G. Narasimhiah

5. Summary

The Raman-Krishnan theory of the optical and electrical properties of liquids based on the idea of an anisotropic polarisation field is extended to the case of binary liquid mixtures. The average moments induced in a type A and a type B molecule in the liquid mixture by unit incident field are calculated separately and summed up giving them weights corresponding to the concentration of the liquid mixture. The formula obtained has been verified in the cases of acetone-water and methyl alcohol-water mixtures.
