Unformatted text preview: TA-4PETR 3402Reservoir Rock PropertiesExperiment 9: Interfacial TensionExperiment Date: 16th November 2010Report Submission Date: 30thNovember 2010Submitted By: Raymond HuppPartners Names:Aaron BlaséBrady GrasmickExecutive Summary:In the following experiment entitled “Interfacial Tension ”, our objective was to measure the surface tension and the interfacial tension of the fluids. The lecture before the lab really helped make this a simple procedure. Throughout this experiment we had to use several new pieces of equipment including the EZ Tensiometer Model 101 and the Du Nouy Ring Tensiometer to measure the interfacial and surface tensions of the various fluids and mixtures in which we had setup. The EZ Tensiometer Model 101 was an easy experiment in which you took your fluids and submersed the tip of the machine into your liquid. Once you removed the tip, you would take the average of the three trials negative numbers in which you had collected. Next, we used the Du Nouy Ring Tensiometer, which was a little more complicated. This equipment required us to get several pieces of paper to calibrate the machine and platinum ring that was hanging. After that was paper to calibrate the machine and platinum ring that was hanging....
