Abstract:A relation of excess volume and density is analyzed for binary liquid mixtures. It is shown that, unlike the ideal mixture, whose density is a monotonous function of composition, extremes may appear on the density curves of mixtures with non-zero excess volumes. Conditions for the existence of extremes are derived. Some examples are also given and briefly discussed.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
