Direct digital reading
High sensitivity and repeatability
Ideal for fluid mechanics teaching
Liquid surface tension coefficient is an important parameter for the characterization of liquid property, which has important applications in industrial, medical and scientific research. Traditional measurement methods using Jolly scale or torsion balance are less precise, instable, and without direct digital output.
This apparatus is designed for measuring liquid surface tension coefficient based on a pulling and breakaway method using a silicon crystal resistance strain sensor. It has the following three advantages:
1. Silicon crystal strain sensor has high sensitivity, linearity and stability, with a digital output voltage display
2. A thin metal ring or slice rather than metal wire or blade, is more rigid (less deformation) and durable
3. Dimensions of the metal ring are specially designed and tested to achieve accurate and reliable results
1. Calibrate a silicon resistance strain sensor, calculate its sensitivity, and learn how to calibrate a force sensor.
2. Observe the phenomena of liquid surface tension.
3. Measure surface tension coefficients of water and other liquids.
4. Measure the relationship between liquid concentration and surface tension coefficient.
