abstract

  • The theory which relates the natural frequency of oscillation of a drop and its surface tension was investigated. Based on this, a new experimental technique of measuring surface tension was developed. The surface tension of pure iron and pure nickel were measured over the temperature ranges, 1550-1650°C and 1475-1625°C, respectively.
