Eyring deduced a relationship between viscosity and molar volume of a pure liquid on theoretical considerations. Katti and Chaudhri assumed that the molar free energy of activation of flow of a mixture is an additive property and derived an equation correlating viscosity of an ideal mixture with molar volumes and composition. This expression was further modified for non-ideal mixtures by introducing a work function to represent the deviation from ideal behaviour. The validity of this equation… CONTINUE READING
