Ultrasonic and conductometric studies of NaCl solutions and study of ionicity of the liquid solution through the Walden plot and various ultrasonic parameters

  • Manoj Kumar Praharaj
  • Sarmistha Misra


Ultrasonic velocity, density and viscosity have been measured for aqueous solution of NaCl at different concentrations and at different temperatures, the frequency being maintained at a constant value. These experimental data have been used to estimate the thermodynamic parameters such as Rao’s constant, Wada’s constant, solvation number and surface tension. Electrical conductivity was measured and along with the above parameters was used to study the ionicity of NaCl.
