Zakaria, Azmi and Sing, L. T. and Saion, Elias and Abdul Wahab, Zaidan (2006) Thermal Wave Resonant Cavity Technique in Measuring Thermal Diffusivity of Sucrose Solution. Pertanika Journal of Science & Technology, 14 (1 & 2). pp. 33-40. ISSN 0128-7680
The thermal-wave resonant cavity technique has been used to measure thermal diffusivity of sucrose solution with precision up to three-significant-figure. The thermal diffu ivity of the solution decreases linearly with the increase of sucrose weight percentage and agrees to the simple mixture rule in the range up to a saturated point. Also the solution thermal diffusivity varies linearly with square FWHM. The thermal diffusivity value of water is very close to the literature value.
