SURFACE TENSION HELP

Allows the prediction of surface tension values for various organic compounds. It uses the Sugden equation and group contribution values.

Sugden Equation used :

@ = [[(Pch(Pl – Pv))/M)]^4 ]10^-12

@ = surface tension, mJ/m^2.

Pch = Sugden’s parachor.

Pl = liquid density, kg/m^3.

Pv = density of the saturated vapor, kg/m^3.

M = molecular weight.

Method of use :

From compound structure enter number of times each element exists in the compound. I.e. if C appears 6 times then enter 6 in the text box along side the C element. Once this is completed for each element/structure, enter liquid density, density of saturated vapor and molecular weight. Calcutions of Sugdens parachor value and surface tension occur on every user input/data change and displayed.

See example below:
