dc.description.abstract(1) The surface tensions of water -methyl alcohol solutions have been determined at 25° C by the capillary rise method.en
dc.description.abstract(2) The surface adsorptions have been calculated by the formula of Gibbs, using the vapour pressure measurements made in Part I of this thesis. The adsorption curve shows a maximum of 38.3 x 10¹³ molecules per sq. cm. at 30 moles per cent alcohol.en
dc.description.abstract(3) This adsorption curve has been compared with the similar curves obtained for ethyl and n-propyl alcohols. The maximum adsorptions of these two alcohols are successively greater and occur at successively lower concentrations than for methyl alcohol. The adsorption in concentrated solutions is progressively less with increasing molecular weight.en
