Experimental Study of Surface Tension Coefficient for Magnetic Fluid
The author measured surface tension coefficient for liquid with a new experimental apparatus, measured magnetic fluid surface tension coefficient at different temperatures and with different volume of surfactant. By the analysis of experimental data, we obtained that magnetic fluid surface tension coefficient decreases with the increasing temperature and increases with the addition of surfactant volume and reaches a certain stability value. We also obtained the expression of magnetic fluid surface tension coefficient and the temperature or surfactant. This paper discussed the relationship between the liquid surface tension coefficient and the temperature and surfactant from the view of thermodynamics.
